Environment Strategy has never been done before at least not one that’s just for Northern Ireland.  So we’re looking for ideas from you on what you think our environment should look like, what we should be trying to achieve?

Here are a few ideas to get you thinking

How we live and thrive today and in the future is reliant on having a sustainable and healthy environment. Use the form below to send your ideas for Northern Ireland’s new Environment Strategy direct to the Department for Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs.

They promise to read and consider every idea you send. 

The strategy needs to focus on results that make a difference to all our lives now and in the future. 

Things like:

  • Climate Change
  • Fisheries and Aquaculture – Inland and sea fishing, and farming of fish, shellfish and plants that grow in water.
  • Built environment – includes buildings and human-made spaces, like parks, roads and railways.
  • Environmental Quality (Air, Water and Neighbourhood) – how the environment affects human beings and other living things.
  • Marine Environment – The Sea has lots of wildlife and habitats – it is about one third of our natural environment.
  • Resource Efficiency – using resources (like water, timber, coal and oil) in a way that reduces harm to our environment.
  • Natural Environment & Landscape – The natural environment includes everything that is not human-made.
