This week the Young Greens had their first stall at the University of Ulster Coleraine freshers fair!

This was to support the setting up of a new Young Green Society in Coleraine and a means to support the North Coast Green Party! Much fun was had and many enthusiastic UU Students signed up and registered their interest in the Young Greens and Green Party!

The Young Greens are growing amongst the youth wings in Northern Ireland and our visit to Coleraine is a great step in getting people in all corners of Northern Ireland active and enthusiastic to campaign for people and planet!

The Coleraine Campus landmark feature is a wind turbine standing 56 metres tall - with a power output equivalent to that consumed by 425 homes its installation and operation now provides a 1074 tonne reduction in annual carbon dioxide emissions emitted at local power stations. Woohoo!!

The Young Greens also ventured and explored Coleraine meeting some locals! Members new and old enjoyed brunch in the Ground Cafe on Kingsgate Street! The Ground Cafe is totally Fairtrade and serves one mean Mushroom soup! Try it! :-D

For anyone interested in getting involved in the new Young Greens group at Coleraine give us an email at QUBGREENS@HOTMAIL.CO.UK and we'll pass on details!
