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.
This major international conference co-hosted by Trócaire, Maynooth University and St Patrick’s College Maynooth 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.
If you are unable to attend the conference in person, it will be available to watch live online. Simply visit this webpage on June 22 and 23 to view the livestream from the event.
Livestreaming kicks off at 4pm (UTC) 22 June with Mary Robinson's keynote.
Other Keynote speakers include:
Bill McKibben, environmental activist, author and co-founder of 350.org
Professor Jean-Pascal van Ypersele, Vice-Chair of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)
