Green Politics in Northern Ireland – with Cllr Dr Georgina Milne

On Eco Living in Action I’m usually pretty focused on the practical actions that we all can take to transition to a sustainable future. But politics, whether we enjoy it or not, is a critical part of our transition.

In the past, Northern Irish politics has been dominated by the nationalist-unionist divide, sidelining big issues  that affect us all – such as biodiversity loss, climate change and the state of our environment. Things have improved a little but there is much progress to be made.

Join me  as I chat with Cllr Dr Georgina Milne who is the Green Party’s representative in the Ormiston district in Belfast City Council. Georgina works as a research scientist at the Agri-Food and Biosciences Institute based in Belfast. We talk about the state of Green politics in Northern Ireland, how she is finding life as a politician, and what Northern Ireland needs to focus on to transition to a sustainable future.

This show was recorded on the 26th May 2017.
