The Climate Strikes and Public Activism: where do we go from here?

The climate strikes have become one of the most successful public action campaigns in recent memory.  They have mobilized millions across the world to take to the streets and demand urgently needed action from our politicians.  According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), global carbon emissions by 2030 need to be limited to 1.5˚C.  Failure to do so will cause long-lasting or irreversible damage to natural and human systems from global warming.  This will include the extinction of entire eco-systems, droughts, flooding, population displacement and increased poverty and hunger.  This event will discuss how the ‘Friday’s for Future’ movement and the growing public activism on climate can be converted into the policy changes needed to tackle the climate emergency.  Where do we go from here? 

25 March 2020 | St Mary’s University College, Belfast | 7.00pm
