Green Party MLA Rachel Woods will serve a second term as Chair of the NI Assembly All Party Group on Climate Action. The North Down MLA is a long-standing activist and advocate for action on climate breakdown and sits on the All-Party Group alongside Green Party leader Clare Bailey MLA.
Rachel Woods MLA said: "I'm delighted to serve as Chair of the All-Party Group on Climate Action for another term.
"Climate breakdown and the ecological crisis are the defining issues of our time. The impacts of these crises are being felt right across these islands with no one immune. There is, however, an opportunity to tackle with the climate crisis before we reach the tipping point of irreversible damage.
"However, the political will to tackle climate change is crucial. There can be no place for climate denial, greenwashing or the pretence of commitment to dealing with the climate crisis while acting in a contrary manner.
"I look forward to continuing to work with the All-Party Group on Climate Action to meet the challenges ahead."
