Can everyone afford to be “Green”?

November 4, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm GMT

How easy is it to go green, to make deliberate, eco-friendly choices when you’re barely getting by? Can everyone afford to dedicate time to learn and take action to become more sustainable? Can our farmers afford to leave some land untouched if it means losing some needed income?

These are the questions we would like to explore during this event. Together we will dissect, learn, and come up with ways to support a Just transition for all in Ireland.
