The Green Party says it can make real changes to the country in the next Dáil term.

The party, which saw two TDs elected in February, is holding its think-in today.

Top of the agenda is a directly-elected mayor for Dublin, which it says would provide leadership on the transport and homelessness crisis.

It also wants to introduce legislation for public banking and to encourage more lending.

The think-in is taking place at the party's head offices in Dublin 2.

Green Party Oireachtas members, councillors and spokespeople will gather to discuss the issues.

Leader Eamon Ryan says these are just two of the areas where the party can bring about change.
