EUNIC Cluster Dublin
Designed to challenge, illuminate and inspire, the series presents a panorama of interconnections, from the causes of climate change to the roles of individuals and societies in addressing the issues. The films and speakers in Climate. Culture. Change are from six European countries giving an international perspective on the issues around climate change. Cultivate’s Davie Philip will facilitate the discussion after each screening with film makers, activists and scientists.

The lectures will take place in the Goethe-Institut Irland, 37 Merrion Square, Dublin 2 on 9 February, 15 March and 26 April 2012 from 2 to 5 pm.

Each year the Franco-Irish Literary Festival presents a central theme and writers from different languages and cultures are given the opportunity to exchange experiences and ideas around this theme in an informal setting. Debates, interviews, "cafés littéraires", readings, book sales and signings took place over the two days of the festival (the last one had to be cancelled).
