(1) Third National Climate Connects Meetup, 20 July, 10am - 5pm, The Tara Building, Dublin

Climate Connects is organised by members of groups within the Irish Climate Movement to facilitate connections between groups so that we can collectively support each other and make the movement as strong, vibrant and sustainable as possible. It is a space where groups can share skills, resources, concerns, and learnings. We'll be discussing how to work together to organise for the international strike actions in September, we'll be giving space for groups to update each other on their campaigns and where and how we can support each other, and so much more! This event is also open to groups that do not work directly on climate issues, but would like to become more involved in the space and connect with groups in the Irish Climate Movement. Please note, this is an event for groups taking action on climate issues and members are asked to register individually. Find out more.

(2) Keeping Tabs: Privacy and Poverty – 29 July, 5.30-7.30pm, Pavee Point, Dublin

Monitoring and surveillance affects everyone's privacy. But it’s well-established that governments and corporations subject those living in poverty to heightened or more invasive surveillance. ICCL has invited the UN Special Rapporteur on Extreme Poverty, Professor Philip Alston, to give a free talk on how digital surveillance technologies are being introduced into social welfare systems around the globe.
