Before the next storm: exploring faith-based responses to climate change challenges
Monday 25th March, 11am-2pm, Carmelite Community Centre, Aungier Street, Dublin 2
Financial Justice Ireland are hosting a panel discussion and information sharing event to explore challenges raised by climate change, how these overlap with the financial system and responses being taken by faith-based groups.
We are joined by Heron Belfron, Programme Co-ordinator of Jubilee Caribbean. Jubilee Caribbean are a newly established network set up by churches in the area who are calling for a moratorium on debt repayments when hurricanes hit these Caribbean islands as well as a debt restructuring process with creditors. Hurricanes in the Caribbean region are becoming more frequent and more severe as a consequence of climate change.
At the same time congregations across Ireland are responding to climate change challenges and are mobilising and divesting from fossil fuels. Join us for this event to hear more about these issues and the role in which your congregation could play in supporting them.
Panel speakers include:
- Sheila Curran, Association of Missionaries and Religious of Ireland (AMRI)
- Kevin Hargaden, Jesuit Centre for Faith and Justice
Lunch will be provided.
More information and registration is available on our website.
