Climate Craic was founded in 2021 as a result of an Active Citizens programme which was sponsored by Co–operation Ireland, a cross–border peace building charity, and the British Council. The primary objective of this organisation is to create positive, borderless engagement with climate action.

With inclusivity at its core, Climate Craic supports the calls for NI Assembly to pass the current Climate Bill. Its core members are also focused on facilitating creative approaches to climate action, socially diverse collaboration, and cross–border climate legislation.

The Director and Founder of Climate Craic, Jacinta Hamley said;

“At Climate Craic, we recognise that there are no borders when it comes to climate change. We are all in this together, and we would like to invite those who might be on the periphery to join the climate conversation. We would like to invite anyone who might be interested in learning more about climate action to our very first festival. We are particularly excited to welcome those who might not currently feel sufficiently represented within climate activism. We encourage anyone who would like to hear from scientists and activists to come along and engage. There has never been a better time to think globally and act locally.”.

There will be a variety of activities at the festival, including live entertainment, eco–friendly workshops, presentations from guest speakers, and displays from local artists.

Climate Craic will be announcing further details regarding entertainment, catering, accessibility, and COVID–19 restrictions on social media in the coming weeks. This event will take place in accordance with all relevant COVID–19 restrictions and guidelines and will have a number of stewards present to ensure social distancing is adhered to. Although this event is free, registration is essential as there are a limited number of tickets available.

This event will be delivered as part of the Climate Coalition’s “Great Big Green Week”, a nationwide celebration of action on climate change. You can contact Sophia Devlin at climatecraic@gmail.com for further information.
