TU Dublin students, in partnership with Action from Ireland (Afri), will host the 2019 Afri Hedge School on November 13th from 9:30am to 4:00pm. The event is organised by third year students of the Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Community and Youth Development course as part of their module Principles of Human Rights.

 

 

Learning about and resisting the causes of poverty is at the heart of Afri's work, and the theme for 2019 Hedge School is "Food Fashion Fuel" focusing on climate justice, social justice and sustainability.

Mindful of the Sustainable Development Goals to 2030 and their importance in focusing action for a more equal, just and sustainable world, the event will feature a blend of speakers, workshops, discussions, drama and creative activities.

 

 

Speakers include - Saoirse McHugh, who describes herself as an environmentalist, a democratic socialist, and a grower. Eddie Mitchell of Love Leitrim and North Leitrim Sustainable Energy Community and renowned actor and activist Donal O'Kelly, who together with Brian Fleming and Ellen Cranitch will perform an intriguing piece called "Roxy's Head is Melted".

 

 

The event will take place on the Blanchardstown campus. It is a free event, however, advance booking is essential as spaces are limited. To register for your place please click here.

"Basically the course covers everything to do with digital and online media. I had it as a hobby in sixth year but when I came here I learned so much more."
