The leader of the Isle of Man Greens says his party must engage with critics to bring about public debate on environmental issues.

Andrew Newton says there are undoubtedly those who disagree with the group’s principles, but insists it’s always ‘open to conversation’.

It comes ahead of the first Green Party conference this weekend, which begins at the Salmon Lake Centre in Laxey on Saturday (21 Sep).

The day before, a strike is planned by the Manx student climate network outside the Tynwald buildings, as part of a global demonstrations to call for governments to take action on the climate emergency.
