UCDVO Annual Forum 2019: ‘Compassion and Action’

What does it mean to be an activist in today’s world and how do we sustain hope? Join us for the UCDVO Annual Forum on the 27th September in the FitzGerald Debating Chamber in Belfield from 10.00 - 14.00.

We are delighted to host Margaret Wheatley as our keynote speaker for the Forum. Margaret has worked globally in many different roles, as a speaker, teacher, community worker, consultant, advisor, formal leader. She is a best-selling author of nine books, from the classic Leadership and the New Science in 1992 to her newest book (June 2017) Who Do We Choose To Be? Facing Reality, Claiming Leadership, Restoring Sanity.

The Forum will also include storytelling from three formidable and compassionate activists, Noeline Blackwell (Dublin Rape Crisis Centre), Bulelani Cornelius Mfaco (MASI) and Joanna Siewierska UCDSU President, Facilitated by Clare Mulvany (Creative & Social Entrepreneur).

This will be followed by lunch and an opportunity to engage in a Human Library.
