About the event

This year has witnessed a groundswell of media, business and community awareness over the impact of climate change, along with a demand for more urgent action. The UK and Ireland legislatures have both declared climate emergencies, and in this context Jonathon will highlight what the future holds and what decisions we need to make.

The event will be hosted by local broadcaster Mark Simpson and will include an opening address from the Lord Mayor as well as vigorous panel debate / audience Q&A with Jonathon Porritt, Forum for the Future; Grainia Long, Belfast Resilience Commissioner; John Barry, Professor of Green Economy QUB; and Michael McLarnon, CEO ISL Waste Management.

The event will also feature contributions from the next generation, including a rendition of "Children of the Revolution" by the Belfast School of Performing Arts.
