Thanks to the initial work by Emer Cooney of Science Media, GFI has been able to make available videos of many of its events. The videos prove very useful to people who wish to learn more about sustainable communities and ecological restoration.

We are fortunate to be able to publish a number of Eco Eye programmes which are the copyright of GFI’s Director and former Chair, Duncan Stewart – we would like to thank Duncan for making these available to us. They can be viewed under the resources section of our website.

By ADVOCACY AND POLICY, Audio & Video, BIODIVERSITY

In September 2022 Green Foundation Ireland made a submission to the Citizens’ Assembly on the topic “How the State can improve its response to the issue of biodiversity loss”.

The Citizens’ Assembly is a body comprising the Chairperson and 99 citizens, randomly selected to be broadly representative of the Irish electorate, established to consider some of the most important issues facing Ireland’s future.

We would like to thank Colin Stafford-Johnson for his contribution and Fionn Keeley for producing “Blinded by the Light – Protecting Ireland’s Skies”, and both for allowing us to use these as part of our submission.
