The theme for this year is Climate Change.
The information listed below is a preliminary sketch of what will be a wonderful few days in Carlingford. Nearer the date, we will confirm speakers and workshops.
Global warming may not sound too bad, but climate chaos is in fact a more apt description of our future, and the chaos is unlikely to stop at climate.
This year the All Ireland Summer School will focus on Humanism and Climate Change and discuss how we can expect increasing conflicts over diminishing resources such as oil, land and water, escalating extinctions of wildlife, more frequent humanitarian disasters, and mass migrations of refugees from areas where food crops no longer grow.
Confirmed speakers include:
- John Barry, Professor of Green Political Economy, School of Politics, International Studies and Philosophy at QUB will speak on Climate Justice
- Eamon McCann, Journalist and Author, campaigner for social justice will speak on Paths to Sustainability
- Duncan Stewart, Award-winning Architect and Television Producer, has been a leading Irish advocate for environmental, health and conservation issues for over 40 years.
The dates are Friday night, Saturday and-Sunday morning, of 26th-28th August 2016. We meet informally on the Friday night in the Carlingford Arms, then on Saturday and Sunday until lunchtime in the Heritage Centre, at the foot of Slieve Foy, the highest peak on Carlingford Mountain.
Ticket Price is €30 for Saturday and €15 for Sunday
On Saturday night we have a dinner and entertainment. If you wish to attend the dinner, the cost is €30.00
If you plan to come for two or three nights, it is important to book accommodation early. http://carlingfordandmourne.com/carlingford/where-to-stay
