Climate Action Plan for NI

The world is at a pivotal moment. Multiple crises are converging – climate breakdown, ecological collapse, a global pandemic, and growing inequalities. Northern Ireland needs to navigate these crises within the context of being a post-conflict society and with what could be described as at best a struggling democracy and at worst a dysfunctional one. But navigate these we must. Friends of the Earth’s plan proposes how we can do this in a way that benefits all the people and communities of Northern Ireland. It unashamedly borrows ideas from other small countries, as well as promoting vibrant grassroots participation in decision-making so that home-grown solutions can emerge. Many changes are needed if we’re to promise the youngest in society that their wellbeing is at the heart of all we do.
