Aim is to provide a forum for open discussion with the youth of East Belfast about climate change and how it affects their local area.

Approx. 90min event:


What’s it about?

The climate crisis: how it affects us (e.g., cost of living), the vision of a greener future, showcasing local talent (e.g., sustainable fashion) and highlighting local efforts (e.g., urban green and blue space, the Greenway). We want to allow the public to talk on these issues, and let them tell us, the academics, what they want from us. We want to give a voice to the youth of East Belfast.

The event is being led by members of the GroundsWell consortium: Prof John Barry from the School of History, Anthropology, Philosophy and Politics and Dr Niamh O’Kane, research fellow and science communication and impact officer from the Centre for Public Health, along with Jacqueline O’Hagan, Manager for EastSide Greenways.
