Towards a positive agenda for climate change

Towards a positive agenda for climate change

Tuesday 24 February – 6.30pm at the Alliance Française

As part of the United Nations Climate Change Conference – COP21 or CMP11- taking place in Paris in December 2015, we invite you to a special roundtable meeting, jointly organised by the Alliance Française and the French Embassy.

Mr Jean-Pierre Thébault, the French Ambassador to Ireland and Former Ambassador in charge of the Environment, will be joined by two representatives from Trocaire -the official overseas development agency of the Catholic Church in Ireland- to discuss the topic of climate change, Mr Eamonn Meehan, Executive Director at Trocaire, and Dr Lorna Gold, Head of Policy and Advocacy.

The discussion will be led by Paul Melia, environment journalist at the Irish Independent, and followed by an audience Q&A.

The COP21 in Paris will seek to achieve a legally binding and universal agreement on climate. The overarching goal of the Convention is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in order to limit the increase of the global temperature to 2 degrees Celsius above the pre-industrial level.

Admission free - Booking essential
