Northern Ireland's First Environment Strategy: Making it work for you

Primary tabs

8 November 2019 -
9:30am to 1:00pm

A call for evidence has been announced for the design of A Northern Ireland Environment strategy.

We now have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to make a difference by encouraging government to realise the potential that exists in Northern Ireland’s environment to enrich our society through development of an ambitious long-term Environment Strategy. 

NICVA and the Northern Ireland Environment Link will be hosting an event to provide an opportunity for wider society to have their say on what they think the environment strategy for NI should look like. We want to ensure that we get a strategy that not only protects and enhances our environment, but also directly benefits all sectors of Northern Ireland society.

This is your opportunity to impact major policy development for now and future generations.
