From School Strikes to Wicklow's Climate and Biodiversity Emergency, local communities are driving change.

Posted on June 14, 2019 by Claudia Tormey

Wicklow Strike 4 Climate

Wicklow’s declaration of a Climate and Biodiversity Emergency was instrumental in pushing the government to make the declaration on a national scale. Keith Scanlon, is one of ten parents and grandparents in Greystones and Delgany, Co. Wicklow, that came together to campaign for Wicklow’s declaration.

For this community, it all began as part of the Global School Strike for Climate on March 15th, in which millions of school students took to the streets all across the world alongside their parents and teachers. An estimated 11,000 people marched and demonstrated in Dublin, while 100’s came together in their local communities across the country.

Between the 20th and 27th of September 7.6 million people globally took to the streets to demand climate justice as part of the Climate Strike.

In Ireland, 50,000 people took part across every corner of the island.

Thanks to those of you that donated to our Climate Strike Fund we create a resource pack of stickers, social media graphics, posters and more. We recruited a team of 15 volunteers who worked from our office to support the 60 people across the country organising strike support actions. And we were able to fund equipment on the day including the stage which was fully solar powered!

It's a Climate Emergency.

And on September 20th, we're filling the streets.

On Friday the 15th of March 2019 1.6 million people took part in a global climate strike in more than 125 countries in more than 2,000 locations. In Ireland more than 15,000 students took part in protests for urgent climate action.

This September 20th, we're going to smash that number. But we need you to make that happen!

Find and join your nearest strike!

School-age students have self-organised marches around the country and they need you to attend.

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.

Close the loopholes in the Climate Bill

Posted on October 23, 2020 by Oisín Coghlan

FB  E-action Close the loopholes

It’s hard to believe but Ireland could have a strong climate law before the year is out.

For the first time ever - and after years of campaigning - this is actually a distinct possibility. But - and this is what fills me with dread - there’s also a chance that this climate law could end up unfit for purpose.

Friends of the Earth, working with our partners in the Stop Climate Chaos coalition, have identified some very concerning loopholes in the climate law’s draft text. Loopholes that could undermine the law’s ability to drive emission reductions.
