Green Party leader Eamon Ryan launched his party’s manifesto over the weekend, ahead of the upcoming Irish general election on 8 February.
The Greens have pledged to offer a universal basic income, provide free public transport for students, as well as make sustainable energy sources available for one million Irish homes.
The Greens also say that they plan on meeting commitments laid out as part of the Paris Climate Accord by working closely with the European Commission on the development of the National Energy and Climate Action Plan for 2030.
“This manifesto is a call to action, we have lost a decade but we’re asking the electorate today to vote for a new decade of change,” Green Party election candidate Neasa Hourigan said.
