Feasta submission to the Citizens’ Assembly on climate

Aug 11, 2017 2 Comments by

Feasta welcomes this opportunity to make a submission to the Citizen’s Assembly on how the State can make Ireland a leader in tackling climate change.

Instead of playing catch-up to other EU countries as is currently the case, we believe Ireland could leapfrog them and establish itself as a visionary leader by taking a global view of the climate challenge and incorporating action on climate with substantive action on inequality and poverty, significant improvements to the quality and freshness of food, and greater overall prosperity and stability in Ireland and elsewhere.

    Excellent submission.

    I’ve already made a submission to the CA, directly recommending that all members of the assembly read, digest and understand what C&S (or British TEQs if you like) is and means.

    Well done.
