Climate Change was the third topic assigned by the Houses of the Oireachtas for consideration by the Citizens’ Assembly. The Assembly’s task was to consider ‘How the State can make Ireland a leader in tackling climate change.’
The Assembly gathered on the weekends 30 September – 1 October 2017 and 4-5 November 2017.
The Society of African Missions made a submission to the Assembly and, on 17 July 2017, we also issued a call from Fr. Maurice Henry SMA encouraging visitors to our website to respond to calls for papers. Fr Henry’s letter may be accessed by clicking here.
On 18 April 2018 the Assembly presented its final report on the topic to the Houses of the Oireachtas.
You may access a copy of the report, including appendices A-E, by clicking here.
Appendix F (which was too large to include in the final report) and which contains all documentation provided to the Members across the two weekends, is available on the Assembly’s website and can be accessed by visiting the following link:
We hope and pray that the Irish Government will implement the recommendations of the Report with the urgency and resolve needed.
