Older people: In action and in solidarity

View all events

We're sorry ...

This event is over and booking is closed.

Are you a grandparent concerned about the future for your grandkids? Are you a retired person who's interested in getting involved in climate action? If your answer is yes, then this is an event for you!

For this next event in our BOLD climate action series we will be joined by Ailbhe Smyth - feminist & LGBTQI+ campaigner and Pat Barker of Grandmothers Against Racism. We will reflect and exchange ideas - informed by our shared lived experience and by the different groups and movements we’ve engaged with.

We aim to bring some of the learning from this dialogue into our "action segment". We will begin to plan the next steps of our BOLD Climate Action project and start shaping its focus areas for 2024. We want you there to bring your ideas, your experience and your creativity to the table. 

There are limited spaces available for this event – once the threshold is met we will be operating awaiting list.

When: Tuesday 23rd January 11am - 2pm

Where: Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission (IHREC), 16-22 Green Street, Dublin 7, D07 CR20

Further information about our GCE collaboration: Friends of the Earth have partnered with BOLD Climate Action - a group set up by older people, for older people, who are concerned about the climate crisis. The BOLD Climate action project aims to develop and deliver a climate education project (funded by Irish Aid) that seeks to engage older people and those working with, providing services to or representing older people to take climate action.

BOLD Climate Action is committed to older people's civic participation by building knowledge and confidence on climate change - and empowering older people to get involved and help shape the the world we want to see.
