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

Issued in the blog on October 30, 2020 at 15:49:00.

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

Issued in the blog on October 23, 2020 at 17:00:00.

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.

Close the loopholes in the Climate Bill

Issued in the blog on October 23, 2020 at 16:14:00.

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.

Catch up on Climate Action - October 2020

Issued in the blog on October 19, 2020 at 11:14:00.

On October 13th 2005 we launched our very first e-action to get all 166 TDs in the Dáil to sign a Climate Pledge promising that Ireland would do its fair share to tackle global climate change. And last week marked our 15 year anniversary! This e-action enabled the public to email their local TDs urging them to sign the pledge for the very first time.

Now fast-forward 15 years to today and our team is working away to ensure the Government pass a strong Climate Law. And emailing TDs and taking e-actions has become the bread and butter of our campaigns!
