The Climate Strikes and Public Activism: where do we go from here?

Wed 25th March 2020, St Mary’s University College Belfast, 191 Falls Road, Belfast BT12 6FE

The climate strikes have successfully mobilized millions across the world. How does the movement convert people power into policy changes needed to tackle the climate emergency?

According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), global carbon emissions by 2030 need to be limited to 1.5?C. Failure to do so will cause long–lasting or irreversible damage to natural and human systems from global warming. This will include the extinction of entire eco–systems, droughts, flooding, population displacement and increased poverty and hunger.
