On Thursday 24th September at 4pm, is running a free online workshop focusing on climate change and climate justice. In this workshop you'll learn more about the global goals, and how you can take positive action in your local community, nationally or internationally.

Whether you are young or old, rich or poor, from urban or rural areas, climate change will impact us all. Climate justice looks at the fact that it is the people who are least responsible for climate change that will suffer its gravest consequences. When talking about climate change, we must make sure our response is rooted in human rights principles and equity.

A group of young people, in partnership with the National Youth Council, have created the Youth Manifesto for Climate Justice. Mair Kelly, who helped write the Manifesto, will be running this workshop and focusing on:

  • What is climate justice
  • Why is climate justice important
  • How can you take action on climate change and climate justice?

This session is open to anyone 16-25 and living in Ireland.
