LGBT+ publication GCN and Extinction Rebellion Ireland, an Irish offshoot of the international movement “that uses nonviolent civil disobedience to achieve radical change in order to minimise the risk of human extinction and ecological collapse” are set to host an event called Mayday. On May 1 they take over Project Arts Centre in Temple Bar for an evening of “information, learning, conversation and action around what each of us can do to effect meaningful change”.
Dr. Ciarán O’Carroll of Extinction Rebellion Ireland will be in attendance and will inform attendees on the latest climate science and offer solutions through the study of social movements.
There’ll also be a panel discussion with guests including environmental journalist and commentator John Gibbons, Oana Marian of Extinction Rebellion and Active Hope Network, Carol-Anne O’Brien of BeLonG To, which is the national organisation for LGBT+ young people, and more panelists TBC.
