  • Mobilise people in the Dublin North Inner City and the General Public on the climate justice debate. Young people from the area will attend a European debate on Climate Justice in Paris a few days before #COP21. They will be the leaders of the preparation of the participation of people from the Croke Park community area to the People’s Climate March on 29th November. In February 2016, a follow up meeting will be organised in the Dublin North Inner City after the Summit to discuss the responsibilities of each citizen to act on climate change and on justice.
