8: Live Recording: The Dublin Arts and Human Rights Festival

Hello lovely people,  Welcome back to Climate Queens!  This month's episode was recorded for the Dublin Arts & Human Rights Festival which ran for ten days from Friday October 16th to Sunday October 25th 2020. It was our very first video episode or "vodcast" as the cool kids say. So if you fancy seeing what we both look like in action you can find the video of this conversation over on our newly formed YOUTUBE channel! Link in the show notes.  For this conversation we are joined by two inspiring women; Mariam Sawadogo from Sierra Leone, who is now a firm friend of the podcast and Clodagh Daly who is one of the volunteer lawyers for Climate Case Ireland. We have been following the work of this organisation over the last couple of years so it was brilliant to be able to speak to Clodagh about the landmark case that was brought to the Supreme Court here in Ireland. Our chats with Mariam and Clodagh delve into the importance of the law when it comes to tackling our climate crisis, the link between human rights violations and climate breakdown and the biggest barriers facing climate action in Sierra Leone and Ireland today. It was a really rich discussion, one we wish could have gone on for the whole evening. We hope you enjoy hearing from Mariam & Clodagh!  If you have a couple of minutes to spare please subscribe and leave us a review, we really love hearing from you, our listeners! Your support means the world to us.
