Introduction

There is a growing interest across Ireland (and indeed Europe) of green electoral politics. This can be witnessed by the ‘green-wave’ that hit Ireland during the local and European elections. Young people are not satisfied with being mere bystanders when it comes to politics and the environment. They want to be involved in the thick of it. We are a left orientated society who value sustainable economic and social development. The Young Greens gives people the opportunity to become active participants in politics. Our key priority is getting voices of students heard. No one will go without a voice in the Young Greens. We believe being politically active is essential to a functioning democracy.

Our Politics

The Young Greens provide a dynamic and fun environment for students to be a part of electoral politics on campus. Our events are laid-back and very informative where we discuss our policies in a fun manner. We campaign for the Irish language, the environment, the de-criminalisation of drugs and sex work, and the re-introduction of native species that are extinct. Má tá suim agat ar pholaitíocht tá na hOige Ghlas páirtí le tonhchar Ghaeilge a chur in iúl sa stat. Tá cúpla Ghaeilgóirí againn. Tá suil agam chun sibh a fheicáil ag ár n-imeachtaí. Is aobhinn linn an thimpeallacht.

Our Events

Our events are laid-back and very informative where we discuss our policies in a fun manner. We will be holding commuter and evening events each week on Wedensday. We do plastic coffee meet ups. We hope to do a collaborations with other political societies doing debates and town halls. We would like to do a model Dail. We hope to take part in School Climate Strikes and other environmental protests.  We will be hosting talks with the likes of Eamon Ryan and Saoirse McHugh.

We will now leave you with the lyrics of a genius wordsmith that captures our climate

Me mind on fire -- Me soul on fire -- Feeling hot hot hot
Party people -- All around me feeling hot hot hot
What to do - On a night like this
Music sweet - I can't resist
We need a party song - A fundamental jam

So we go rum-bum-bum-bum
Yeah we rum-bum-bum-bum
Feeling hot hot hot -- Feeling hot hot hot - oh Lord

See people rocking -- Hear people chanting -- Feeling hot hot hot
Keep up this spirit -- Come on let's do it -- Feeling hot hot hot
It's in the air - Celebration time

So we go rum-bum-bum-bum
Yeah we rum-bum-bum-bum
Feeling hot hot hot -- Feeling hot hot hot - Oh Lord
