A point about language - Don't say 'environment'.

It is important at every opportunity to speak of 'ecology' and
'ecosystems' rather than 'the environment'. The latter is too easily
assimilable to neoclassical economics, to 'us vs them' thinking about
nature, etc. .
The future is ecosystems and their restoration (or bust).

Perhaps you should put a motion to conference to change the name of your party to "The Ecology Party"?
