iCRAG is proud to partner the Mary Robinson Centre and University of Galway which will host the first Mary Robinson Climate Conference this summer.
Climate change is the defining socio-economic force of the 21st century. The Mary Robinson Climate Conference is an inclusive multidisciplinary forum bringing together voices from all sectors of academia and society to share climate experiences and discuss pathways for a sustainable future.
The event takes place on July 6th and 7th, 2023, in Ballina, Co Mayo.
Mary Robinson said: “This situation must not lead us to despair, rather it should propel us into action.”
Dr Gordon Bromley, iCRAG Funded Investigator and Lecturer in Physical Geography & Climate at University of Galway, said: “Climate change is the greatest socio-economic force of the 21st Century, creating uncertainty and threatening to undermine basic societal foundations. As we stand at this critical juncture – seeking to prevent, mitigate, and adapt to global warming – the time is ripe and the need is clear to chart our awareness into truly new waters and to use our collective knowledge to better plan for the future.”
The schedule will feature presentations, discussions, roundtables, and workshops related to the impact of climate change on the physical, social, cultural, political, health, and economic environments of our planet and ways to address it.
The call for session proposals is now open until February 15th. Suggestions are invited from a wide spectrum of disciplines.
