Seeding Change - A journey into climate, people & planet

This 5-part evening course is for those looking to dive deeper into questions of climate and environmental justice. It promises to equip participants with new insights and offers a unique space within which to deliberate as part of a campus community. 



Drawing on wisdom from scholar-activists and campaigners from across Ireland and the globe, the course offers space for participants to examine climate and environmental justice with a critical lens. Through the weeks, participants will be invited to consider what it means to live ethically in these times. They will also have the chance to meet with campaigners who are offering creative ways forward in the face of escalating ecological damage and injustice. 

A key aim of this course is to encourage participants to stay with the complexity of the topics whilst remaining active and engaged. Focus is also placed on relationships as a route to repair. How might a better relationship with ourselves, with others and with wider nature play a role in creating the better world we know is possible? Seeding Change takes a group approach to learning and incorporates methodologies which work with mind and body.
