This event is now over.

The Climate Gathering is working with Christian Aid, Ibec, Irish Congress of Trade Unions, The Environmental Pillar and Trócaire to stage a series of conversations, lectures and debates in 2015 with the theme “Bringing People Together for a New Understanding on Climate Change”. Please click here to see the programme of previous sessions.

BOOKING is now open for the final session – Session V: The Call to New Horizons which will take place in the Abbey Theatre, Dublin on Sunday 10 May 2015 at 7:00pm. Speakers on the night will include: Dorothy Cross (artist), Mark Patrick Hederman (Abbot of Glenstal Abbey), Michael Gibbons (archaeologist and raconteur) and Tommy Tiernan (comedian, actor and writer).

The Climate Gathering originated as a project known as the “Western World Convention”. In January 2012 Green Foundation Ireland began working with a group of Irish experts in climate policy, mediation and problem-solving to assess whether Ireland could be used as a gathering place for a new interdisciplinary network of leaders addressing the climate challenge. The project is an initiative of Green Foundation Ireland.
