Dundee City Council's proposed low emissions zone isn't big enough, ambitious enough or imaginative enough, as we have explained in our contribution to the consultation. It ought to have been an opportunity to reimagine the city for the better rather than just tinkering around the edges. Nevertheless, it is a step in the right direction, and the level of support reported here is good news....

Dundee has a tragically, appallingly high drug death rate. But to imply that this is simply because drugs are bad and that's the end of the story isn't just wrong- it's lethally wrong. In fact, Dundee's drug deaths are as much to do with a deadly combination of alcohol and the prescription anti anxiety medicine benzodiazepine (and knock off street versions) as they are with heroin on its own....

Sadly, the experiences reported here of unreliable services and long waits for scheduled buses will be familiar to many users of Dundee's beleaguered bus network. At a time when we desperately need dependable public transport for the many who rely on it, and as an alternative to the private cars that, according to recent figures, represent Scotland's biggest domestic source of emissions, this just...

This is a climate crisis impact that doesn't get talked about enough. A huge area of the planet where a large proportion of the population depend on agriculture for their livelihoods (and we depend on the crops they grow) is simply getting too hot for people to work outdoors in.

Global heating is having a deadly impact on Nicaragua’s sugar cane workers, who toil in temperatures of up to 45C

With this bill one Green MP in Westminster is doing more to provide a meaningful alternative to a bankrupt Tory government than the entire Labour front bench. Seven Green MSPs in Holyrood are setting the agenda for the most transformative Scottish Government ever. You want to make your vote count? Vote Green.

Very shortly I'll be introducing the Green New Deal in Parliament, with the support of...

This is a fantastic project by the Dundee Renewable Energy Society, and great to see it getting coverage. Community renewable energy is a big part of our energy policy and we would like to see the creation of local energy companies and a Green Investment Bank to back community energy projects like this one, bringing the profits from energy back to local people.

Plans to bring solar energy to the...

"This is a significant step forward by the Scottish Government, building on what we agreed in the co-operation deal on public grants.

“Requiring all government procurement contracts to pay the Living Wage will make a big impact on driving up pay and improving people’s lives, embedding the Fair Work agenda into Scotland’s economy more than ever before. I look forward to further work in this...

Last seek, Scottish Green Party justice spokesperson and North East MSP Maggie Chapman raised concerns about Police Scotland in relation to the conviction of Metropolitan Police Officer Wayne Couzens. The news today that Police Scotland officers have routinely got away with sexual misconduct makes her questions look more pertinent than ever - and the answers provided to them look a lot less...

Today, Patrick addresses the Scottish Green Party conference -

“I know what it’s like to be thrown out your home. That’s why it means so much to me to be able to deliver a New Deal for Tenants. The Greens know homes are more than bricks and mortar, so in Govenment we will ensure Tenants are at the heart of this process”

"Challenge Poverty Week comes in the same week as the UK Government is delivering the biggest ever cut to social security in modern history, and we need to use the powers we have in Scotland to mitigate that cruel policy...Now our shared policy agreement in government means we will double the Scottish Child Payment, introduce rent controls and see more support for people impacted by the benefit...

It's great to see a leading industrial company in Dundee move to employee ownership. Supporting employee owned companies is something we're explicitly committed to in our manifesto - not only are they better for workers' rights and local communities, they have a track record of being more productive as well.

A Dundee cable manufacturing firm has handed control and ownership of the business to...
