Voices Rising Conversations

Saturday 2.15 - 3.00 - ‘A Sense of Place’

Fostering a sense of place and valuing heritage should be seen as positive actions which contribute to the sustainability and resilience of our local areas. How can we do this? Anna Meenan (Heritage Council), Thomas Cosby (Stradbally Estate), Clr Claire Byrne (Green Party), and Roisín Ní Ghairbhith (Transition Town Ennistymon) discuss with Davie Philip (Cloughjordan Ecovillage).


5.30 - 6.15 - ‘Surfing the Waves of Change’

How do we navigate change, have impact and remain buoyant in the face of so many challenges? Professional surfer Fergal Smith (Moy Gardens); Davie Philip (Cultivate, Cloughjordan Ecovillage), one of the UK’s best skateboarders in the 80s; and Matt Mills (Goleen Harbour), an early champion mountain biker, discuss their current sustainability projects with food sovereignty advocate Fergal Anderson (Leaf and Root).


Sunday 2.15 - 3.00 - ‘Get Involved’  What will you do?

How can local communities cooperatively improve their local areas, create local jobs, and protect the environment? In this conversation Duncan Stewart (EcoEye), Lisa Moran (Clann Credo), Enda Buckley (Get Involved), Fionnuala Collins (East Clare Community Coop) and Davie Philip (Cloughjordan Ecovillage) discuss a collaborative way forward.


4.30 - 5.15 - ‘Culture Change’

How do we amplify communication on sustainability and increase engagement in the transition to a low-carbon future? Davie Philip (Cultivate/Cloughjordan Ecovillage) hosts this final Voices Rising conversation with Melvin Benn (Festival Republic & Board member of Julie’s Bicycle, a not-for-profit organisation working on sustainability within the creative industries), Anja Murray (Get Involved), Michael Ewing (IEN), George Jacob (Gorta Self Help Africa) and Naomi Linehan (Dochas).
