Against the backdrop of Afri’s Famine Walk on Saturday 19th, this innovative event is intended to explore today’s challenges both in Ireland and globally, in conversation and through culture using the Great Hunger and Richard’s legacy as backdrops, including solidarity with the global social justice movement, the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals, climate action and food sovereignty. A strand in Irish exploring ecological parallels in culture and language will be facilitated by Teacht Aniar.
