More talking about Climate Change? Yes. But this is different. Climate Conversations is a series of dialogues aiming to bring everyone, from every background together to act positively towards the transition we all know is coming. It is organised by a multi-stakeholder group comprising IBEC, ICTU, Christian Aid, Trócaire and the Environmental Pillar under the platform "Climate Gathering". There are 5 FREE events over 2 months. The first event, "Communicating the Challenge" took place on March 18th in Liberty Hall, with a stirring opening by David Begg (formerly) of ICTU. Each event will have artists, musicians and unique perspectives on the issue. Join the conversation at #climateconversations and get your tickets here.
I am doing digital graphic recording for the event, including some graphic tweets- see below.
UCD Early Career Researchers
On March 6th I was asked to visually record the outcomes of a World Café hosted at UCD for Early Career Researchers. This was the final session of a 2-day event aimed at supporting researchers to be entrepreneurial and innovative. Thank you to UCD Research for the images.
Good Food, Good Farming
In February this year I travelled to Brussels to graphically record a conference on Good Food and Good Farming, a mobilisation around reform of the European Common Agricultural Policy, to deliver better results for the environment, rural communities and consumers. It was a fascinating 2 days and a crucial topic- food is something that connects every issue. The conference was organised by a European Platform called Arc2020, learn more about their work to reform the CAP here.
