What We Do

Short Climate Protest Film

On 6 November 2021, a climate protest was organised in Belfast city centre to coincide with the COP-26 conference in Glasgow.  The protest attracted a large turnout from across civil society including young climate activists, trade unions, non-governmental organisations, political parties and concerned members of the public.  The Centre for Global Education carried out some filming on the day and interviewed some of the speakers and protesters to get their views on the climate emergency and how we should respond.  Many of those we spoke to commented on the lack of climate change legislation in Northern Ireland when the climate crisis appears to be accelerating toward a tipping point.  Speakers also commented on the importance of public activism to make this legislation a reality and to ensure that political leaders take action to mitigate the causes and effects of climate change.  Please share the film on social media to encourage continued public activism on this crucial issue.
