The Ireland Fellows Programme Hosts Climate and Environment Workshop

A workshop for current Ireland Fellows and recent graduates whose interests and studies are in the area of Climate and the Environment took place on 17 February

The Climate and Environment Workshop aimed to build connections between the Department of Foreign Affairs and current and former Ireland Fellows to understand the research currently being undertaken in the fields of climate change and the environment, and the impressions of international scholars in how these matters and issues are understood from their perspectives and from the perspectives of their countries. Additionally, the workshop gave the participants the opportunity to build connections with each other, as well as practitioners and policy makers in the area of climate, and to hear about one another’s experiences and research topics. The participants heard presentations from fellows and alumni and then broke into breakout rooms to discuss specific topics further.  

The workshop featured presentations from:  

  • Winston Vincent Dickenson Williams - MSc in Co-operatives, Agri-Food and Sustainable Development at UCC - Antigua & Barbuda 

  • Shaunagh Rae Maxine Moodie - MSc in Renewable Energy and Environmental Finance at UCD Smurfit - South Africa 

  • Bipendra Prakash - MSc in Climate Change at MU - Fiji 

  • Maggie Musanje Bukowa - MSc in Climate Change: Policy, Media and Society at DCU - Zambia 

  • Fakhry A. F. Jayousi - MEngSc in Water Waste and Environmental Engineering at UCD - Palestine
