The NFLA All Ireland Sustainable Energy Forum, which was recently relaunched in its new guise last month, welcomes the clear thinking and dynamic declaration that was made by a special ‘Youth Assembly on Climate’ held in the Dail recently. The politics of Ireland has been transformed in recent months by the acknowledgement of the ‘climate emergency’ and it has been the activism of dedicated young people that has been a core part of this. Our Forum agrees with them that Ireland has been ‘sleepwalking’ on the impacts of climate change and the need for an urgent ramping up of renewable energy. The 150 young people, selected from across Ireland discussed how government should tackle the climate crisis as part of the country’s first Youth Assembly on climate change. The delegates were aged between 10 and 17 and met in the Dáil to discuss the environment, economics, food, energy and education policy in Ireland.
