Full Event Details

Tá na fadhbanna a bhaineann leis an Athrú Aeráide ag éirí níos forleithne agus níos géire in Éirinn agus ar fud an domhain. Tá sé mar aidhm ag an ócáid seo, feasacht a mhúscailt faoi impleachtaí an Athraithe Aeráide agus easpa oibre Rialtas na hÉireann a phlé. Ni bhreathnoidh an imeacht seo ar na gnéithe phraiticiúla den athrú aeráide amháin, ach freisin ar an nasc idir litríocht na Gaeilge agus an t-athrú aeráide. Ta filíocht na  hÉireann lán le paisean agus díograis a bhaineann le tubaistí nádúrtha agus le tubaistí daonna, an t-athrú aeráide ina measc.

I mí an Mheithimh 2020, ghlac Friend of the Irish Environment (FIE) caingean dlí i gcoinne rialtas na hÉireann mar gheall ar easpa gnímh an rialtas maidir le hathrú aeráide. Glaotar ‘Climate Case Ireland’ ar an gcás seo agus is é an chéad chás dá leithéid in Éirinn. Le linn na hócáide cloisfimid ón Dr. Rónán Kennedy, a chomhscríobh alt ar ‘Climate Case Ireland’. Foilsíodh an t-alt seo san Iris Pleanála agus Dli na Timpeallachta, na hÉireann. Is léachtóir ag NUIG é Rónán, a bhfuil taithí shuntasach aige i dtaighde dlí comhshaoil.

Labhróidh an tOllamh Rióna Ní Fhrighil agus Laoighseach Ní Chocastlebha ó Roinn na Gaeilge ag Ollscoil na hÉireann, Gaillimh.  faoin nasc tarraingteach idir filíocht na Gaeilge agus cearta an duine. An fhilíocht chomhaimseartha agus an t-aistriúchán liteartha na príomhréimsí taighde atá ag Rióna . Tá Laoighseach ag dul faoi PhD,  ag déanamh taighde scagadh ar an athláithriú a dhéantar ar chearta an duine i bhfilíocht na hÉireann san fhichiú haois agus anuas go dtí ár linn féin, le tionscadal darbh ainm Republic of Conscience: Cearta an Duine agus Nuafhilíocht na Gaeilge.  Is tionscadal idirdhisciplíneach é Republic of Conscience: Cearta an Duine agus Nuafhilíocht na Gaeilge a bhaineann go dlúth le léann na litríochta, léann chearta an duine agus léann an aistriúcháin.

Reáchtálfar an ócáid seo trí Ghaeilge. Deis a bheidh ann gnéithe de chultúr na hÉireann agus chearta an duine a chur le chéile. Tabharfaidh an ócáid ​seo deis do dhaoine a bhfuil spéis acu sa Ghaeilge, san athrú aeráide agus i gcearta an duine na réimsí seo go léir a phlé ag aon ócáid amháin.

The issues caused by Climate Change are becoming more prevalent and rampant in Ireland and around the world. This event aims to raise awareness around the implications of Climate Change and explore the failings of the Irish Government to take action on Climate Change. This event will also move beyond the practical aspect of climate change and look at its link with Irish-language poetry. Irish language literature is entrenched with passion and intensity which can be linked with natural and human disasters, including climate change.

In June 2020 Friend of the Irish Environment (FIE) took legal action against the Irish government for failing to take adequate action on climate change. This case known as ‘Climate Case Ireland’ marked the first case of it’s kind in Ireland. During the event we will hear from Dr. Rónán Kennedy, who co-wrote an article on the Climate Case Ireland, published in the Irish Planning and Environmental Law Journal. Rónán is a lecturerer at NUIG, with considerable experience in environmental law research.

Professor Rióna Ní Fhrighil and Laoighseach Ní Choistealbha from the Department of Irish at NUIG, will speak about the captivating link between Irish-language poetry and human rights. Rióna has published extensively on twentieth-century Irish poetry and literary translation while Laoighseach is undergoing a PhD examing the literary techniquers adopted by Irish poets to respond to international human rights conflicts, in a project named Republic of Conscience: Human Rights and Modern Irish Poetry.

The event will be held through Irish. It will be a chance to the combine the areas of Irish culture and human rights. This event will give all those with an interest in both the Irish language, climate change and human rights the opportunity to explore these areas all at the one event.
