This major international conference co-hosted by Trócaire, Maynooth University and St Patrick’s College Maynooth brought together some of the world’s leading voices on climate science, climate justice and climate activism.

Climate change, and the injustice it represents, is one of the most serious challenges facing humanity. But while the evidence on human-made climate change is overwhelming, action to stem the rise in global temperatures lags far behind.

Through an interactive dialogue, the conference examined how all sectors of Irish society can contribute towards building a low carbon future around principles of justice and equity.
