DIAS Day Lecture – Mary Robinson Address
*DIAS 2020 INVITE ONLY EVENT*
On June 18th we will mark the eve of the founding of the institute with a talk by former Irish president Mary Robinson.
This pioneering, first female president of Ireland has had a fascinating career, and she joins is to speak on Climate justice.
The Mary Robinson Foundation – Climate Justice is a centre for thought leadership, education and advocacy on the struggle to secure global justice for those people vulnerable to the impacts of climate change who are usually forgotten – the poor, the disempowered and the marginalised across the world.
It is a platform for solidarity, partnership and shared engagement for all who care about global justice, whether as individuals and communities suffering injustice or as advocates for fairness in resource-rich societies.
The Foundation provides a space for facilitating action on climate justice to empower the poorest people and countries in their efforts to achieve sustainable and people-centred development.
