This one day seminar led by Professor Peadar Kirby and Feasta’s Bruce Darrell places into a wider global context the everyday issues of sustainability and resilience that the Cloughjordan ecovillage seeks to model. This seminar will address the need to transition towards a low-carbon society by 2050 in order to avoid the catastrophic consequences that could otherwise result. It points to the huge uncertainty facing humankind yet highlights the positive benefits that lie in store if we can make the transition in a planned and ordered way. The day will include a tour of the ecovillage and will be conducted in an interactive way combining input with active participation and sharing. It is open to anyone who is interested in the issues being examined and does not require any prior level of knowledge.
