Green Party members from across the country are gathering in Dublin for their annual convention.
Among the topics up for discussion is how to build on the party’s success in the recent local and European elections where they secured 49 councillors and two MEPs.
Later this afternoon, delegates will also discuss a motion against entering coalition with Fianna Fáil, Fine Gael or any party whose policies and values conflict with those of the Green Party.
The party is also due to debate policies on climate change, housing, transport, planning and childcare.
Green Party leader Eamon Ryan told members that their job was to grow support and prepare for the next election.
“We are in a climate and biodiversity emergency. We need everyone to play their part in responding to that challenge”.
The party’s membership has surged to 2,000 up from 1,200 at the beginning of the year.
