We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.
As your representative for Cabra-Glasnevin, I will work to deliver my vision for a greener, cleaner, fairer and safer Dublin.
While we've made big leaps on sustainable transport recently, there's a lot more to do. I will continue to advocate for investment in sustainable transport to decrease pollution and congestion.
We need public investment in housing to resolve Dublin’s housing crisis. We also need to tackle vacancy and dereliction, have stronger renter’s rights and increased enforcement of existing regulations to protect tenants.
Like most people, I’m also worried about the escalation in threatening behaviour towards minority communities. I will stand up against intolerance and discrimination and work to build a fairer city with equality and respect at its heart.
I’m Feljin and I’m the Green candidate for the Cabra-Glasnevin ward in the 2024 Dublin City Council election. I moved to Phibsborough from India at the age of 9. I went to school in St. Vincent’s in Glasnevin, studied astrophysics in DCU and am currently doing a PhD in renewable hydrogen generation in DCU.
I’ve devoted most of my adult life to environmental advocacy. I’m currently the chairperson of Dublin Commuter Coalition — a group which I’ve worked tirelessly with for over four years to improve and promote public transport, active travel and public spaces in Dublin. My advocacy work has given me experience in dealing with every level of local and national government — from councils and state agencies to TDs and Ministers — and convincing them to make hard choices for a sustainable, competitive and vibrant city.
I know how to navigate the labyrinthine workings of Dublin City Council. I understand how progress is hampered by siloed departments and the competing interests of national agencies. The strength of the Green cohort on the council is our range of expertise and our clear agenda–this is why I joined the party. The Greens understand how little time we have to build a climate resilient city.
