The Learning Hub is a carefully curated space for discussion, critical thinking, peer education and building a sense of solidarity.

Our most recent cycle of the Learning Hub aims to create conversations hinging around themes and issues that arise in the following four books;

  1. Climate Justice: Hope, Resilience, and the Fight for a Sustainable Future by Mary Robinson
  2. Violent Borders: Refugees and the Right to Move by Reece Jones
  3. On Fire: The Burning Case for a Green New Deal by Naomi Klein
  4. Hope in the Dark: Untold Histories, Wild Possibilities by Rebecca Solnit

For each book we are hosting a webinar and an interactive workshop. We'll also share a read and watch list to explore more the topics at hand.

System:Reset Project Update

Posted on February 22, 2021 by Claudia Tormey

System Reset

System: Reset is a Pan-European project that Friends of the Earth is part of. The project aims to build platforms across Europe to bring young people from under-represented communities into multi-level decision-making and build strong, collective visions for a socially just and ecologically sound future.

We have lots in store for System:Reset this year, including a Just Transition Champions Training Programme, which we’re collaborating on with Community Work Ireland. This programme will support youth and community workers to consider how climate justice relates to their practice and support them to engage with and contribute to the implementation of just transition policies and plans. You can apply for this training here at this link.

There’s no doubt about it, January was a long, hard month for many of us. It’s good to see February arrive - with some new hope and slightly brighter days.

We're delighted to announce that the Learning Hub we launched in Autumn 2020 is back in action. Perhaps you attended the first Learning Hub event last October, where the meaning of Climate Justice was explored? If you missed it, you can watch it back here. That first event was based loosely on Mary’s Robinson’s book ‘Climate Justice’.

Watch it Back - Hopeful Chats about Climate Change

Posted on January 13, 2021 by Claudia Tormey

Watch it Back Hopeful Chats twitter (1)

There’s no denying it, the last few weeks have been very difficult. We’re living through a period where every glimmer of hope we can find is precious - and to be treasured. With that in mind, we wanted to share the recording of a webinar that we hosted just before Christmas - Hopeful Chats about Climate Change. People left the webinar feeling very hopeful - and it continues to give us hope when we think back about it now! You can watch it back here in your own time. 

 

Dr Cara Augustenborg did a super job of chairing the discussion and spoke from her own experience as a climate scientist, activist and mother.

Climate justice webinar: watch it back + some more opportunities for learning and action

Posted on October 30, 2020 by Deirdre Duff

For recording  Watch it back CJ webinar IG post

On Wednesday 28th October, we hosted a webinar to explore the concept of climate justice. Climate justice is a term that has been bandied around a lot lately - but we wanted to dig into what it really means. We’ve recorded the webinar so you can watch it back at your leisure. It’s just over an hour in length and comes highly recommended as we had some excellent speakers and panellists from the world of climate justice, who joined us to talk about their work and activism.

Explore our Climate Justice Read and Watch List

Posted on October 23, 2020 by Deirdre Duff

FB Explore our Climate Justice Read

Ahead of our webinar on Climate Justice next Wednesday, 28th October (which you can register for here) we’ve compiled a read and watch list on climate justice that we’d love you to explore! So as the days draw shorter, why not curl up with a hot drink and pick something to read or watch from this list - it's got a bunch of articles, videos and even a documentary film on the subject of climate justice. A few weeks after Wednesday's webinar, we'll organise a more in-depth workshop to explore the ideas that unpin climate justice in more detail. Exploring our read and watch list would be good preparation for that event too.

FB Catch up on Movement building

The Growing Together project winds down for Friends of the Earth this month, but the group that formed through this project will continue on to advocate for food sovereignty and sustainable solutions to our broken food system through creative activities.

As you can imagine, the end of summer and harvest has been a busy time for the Growing Together agri-activists with seed saving workshops (including an online seed saving webinar that you can watch back here), farm visits and food sovereignty online theatre performances. They have also been busy researching and interviewing farmers around the country and have curated the latest research to establish a path to a more sustainable food system for Ireland.

Climate Justice: A discussion

Posted on October 16, 2020 by Deirdre Duff

Climate Justice webinarb28 oct

Climate justice is a term that has been bandied around a lot lately. But do we really understand what it means? And when we use the term, are we really upholding the principles of climate justice? Despite its recent popularity, climate justice is not a new term. The ideas that underpin climate justice in its original sense have been developed over decades by social movements such as environmental justice, trade justice and peasant movements. Key climate justice concepts such as ”climate debt” and “equity” have been developed and refined, largely by movements in the Global South - often with pushback from the Global North. With that in mind we’re hosting a webinar at 6pm on 28th October to examine the meaning of climate justice. You can join us by registering for the webinar here
