Jul 13, 2017 No Comments by

Stop Climate Chaos, of which Feasta is a member, is organising an event on July 22:

“Happenings in partnership with Dublin City Council and Stop Climate Chaos will be hosting ‘Dinner With Darwin’ in Dartmouth Square. The evening will feature an array of fun and informative activities for kids and adults alike with a focus on climate change and sustainability.

Stop Climate Chaos, a coalition of organisations campaigning to ensure Ireland plays its part in preventing runaway climate change, will host Climate Fest – an interactive exhibition that creatively explores what can be done to tackle climate change. A fun and creative way to educate and ignite conversation!

The guest of honour at the dinner table will be Chris Darwin, the great great grandson of Charles Darwin who has carried on his ancestor’s legacy and will share his thoughts on climate change and what we can do about it as we enjoy plates of veggie grub provided by The Happy Pear.

The evening will culminate in talks and a panel discussion from important figures leading the climate change and sustainability action in Ireland chaired by Manchán Magan.

There will be loads more activities during the day including a Happenings Yoga class, finishing off the evening with a special open – air screening of Wall-E!”
