9.30 Mary Robinson - Climate Justice
The former president of Ireland, Mary Robinson, has turned her energy to the fight against climate change. She has set up The Mary Robinson Foundation - Climate Justice which focuses on the struggle to secure justice for people who are vulnerable to the impacts of climate change and who are usually forgotten - the poor, the disempowered and the marginalised. She has also released a series of podcasts with comedian Maeve Higgins, Mothers of Invention, which tells the stories of women all over the world driving climate solutions. She joins Kim to talk about her new book, Climate Justice: Hope, Resilience, and the Fight for a Sustainable Future, in which she argues that grassroots activists offer hope in the face of climate change.
