Event Description

A Climate Justice Seminar took place in EDIC Donegal and Gaeltacht, Central Library on Thursday 24 September at 7pm. The seminar explored the state of Climate Change happening now and what we can do to help in both an institutional and personal way. The theme of Climate Justice was explored, i.e. the fact that industrialised countries are contributing most to emissions while underdeveloped countries are suffering most of the consequences & are the victims of Climate Injustice.
The seminar was facilitated by Roisín O’Hara from Trocaire. 25 members of the public took part and contributed greatly to the seminar on the night, including a statement of what they will do to improve climate justice/lower carbon emissions and lobby their TDs and local councillors.
