Migration  Read

Ahead of our first Learning Hub webinar on Climate and Migration (which you can now watch back here) we compiled a Read and Watch list on this theme that we’d love you to explore.

Whether you have five minutes or five hours, you can dip in and out of the list according to the time you have to spare. The beauty of our Learning Hub is that you can read and watch for just a few minutues or for many hours! It's perfect preparation for our next webinar on Climate and Migration which will take place in May or June 2021 - this second webinar will have a workshop, participatory structure.

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’.

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.

FB Explore our Climate Justice Read

Ahead of our webinar on Climate Justice on Wednesday, 28th October (which you can now watch back here) we 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.

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

Join our new Learning Hub!

And the winners are....! (1)

Can you remember a time when you learnt something that changed your perspective forever?

In Friends of the Earth we are committed to a process of consistently learning and unlearning about the systems of power and oppression that influence our lives and the world around us. We believe that we need to understand systems in order to effectively change them.

We also believe in challenging ourselves to consistently create more welcoming spaces for people to engage in a process of interrogating the root causes of global injustice. By doing this we aim to help grow and work with a more critically informed network of change makers across Ireland.
