Mary Robinson, the former president of Ireland is on a mission to fight against the menace of climate change. This mission, now presented in her inspiring new book Climate Justice, has led her from Malawi to Mongolia.
In this unmissable conversation with Lucy Siegle, the environmental campaigner and author of Turning The Tide on Plastic, Mary will tell us about her journey, how the agents of change in the battle for climate justice at grassroots level are women, many of them mothers and grandmothers like herself. From Sharon Hanshaw, the Mississippi matriarch whose campaign began in her East Biloxi hair salon and culminated in her speaking at the United Nations, to Constance Okollet, a small farmer who transformed the fortunes of her ailing community in rural Uganda, Mary has met with ordinary people whose resilience and ingenuity has already unlocked extraordinary change.
Join us to understand how we can create a better future for the world.
“Praise for Mary Robinson: ‘As an advocate for the hungry and the hunted, the forgotten and the ignored, Mary Robinson has not only shone a light on human suffering, but illuminated a better future for our world” – President Barack Obama
