Climate Change Conference
2015 is a critical year in addressing the impending climate emergency and charting a path towards a more sustainable future, culminating in the UN Summit (COP21) in Paris in December.
Trócaire is holding a major international conference on 22 June – 23 June 2015, co-hosted by
Maynooth University and St Patrick’s College Maynooth which will bring together some of the world’s leading voices on climate science, climate justice and climate activism.
Climate change, and the injustice it represents, is one of the most serious challenges facing humanity. But while the evidence on human-made climate change is overwhelming, action to stem the rise in global temperatures lags far behind.
Through an interactive dialogue, the conference will examine how all sectors of Irish society can contribute towards building a low carbon future around principles of justice and equity.
Miriam Gormally spoke with Eoghan Rice, International Humanitarian Communications Officer about what needs to be done.
You can also watch the new Trócaire-produced documentary ‘Drop in the Ocean? Ireland and Climate Change’ on their website www.trocaire.org/climate-justice-2015.
