At the Green Party, we consider the environment to be the world we live in, and the world in each living being.

Every one of our policies encompasses this new definition of the environment. From practical solutions to meet our energy and economic demands, to promoting social justice and celebrating the best in everyone's caring human nature.

It's not just about melting ice caps. It's about a whole new approach to living well, freely, in peace and in harmony with our natural surroundings.

We warmly welcome Pope Francis' Laudato Si 'On Care for Our Common Home'.

The Green Party's Spokesperson on the Environment is Cllr. Malcolm Noonan.
