For more than a decade Mary has campaigned for Climate Action, attending marches, lobbying within Fianna Fáil and challenging Government inaction.
Mary welcomed the cross party support for the Fianna Fáil Dáil motion making Ireland the second country in the world to declare a Climate Emergency. However Mary warned that strong Government action must follow if we are to secure a sustainable future for all.
If elected to Dublin City Council Mary will do the following:
- Drive City Council to set and achieve City Climate Action Plan targets
- Carbon proof Dublin City Council €900m annual budget
- Reduce Dublin city carbon footprint through a building retrofit programme and transition to environmentally friendly transport
