An Evening with Her Excellency Mrs Mary Robinson, ‘Overcoming Challenges in a Climate Changed World’ – Official podcast

Mrs. Robinson has led an extraordinary life. She was the 7th President of Ireland, spent five years as High Commissioner for Human Rights and since then has been appointed a special envoy on Climate Change representing the U.N. at numerous global summits. Most recently, Mrs. Robinson has set up her own foundation advocating ‘Climate Justice’ for the poorest and most vulnerable peoples of the world. Now, with climate change dominating the agenda more than ever before, Mrs. Robinson joins us to reflect on the lessons of her life, career and to impress upon us why it is so important to empower the poorest people and countries in their efforts to achieve sustainable and people-centered development. This event was moderated by journalist and LIBS board member Ian Kearney and was hosted at One Wimpole St, London, on 13th February 2018.
