This Reboot Republic talks to Orla Kelleher, who is a graduate of law and completing her PHD in the Sutherland School of Law UCD on climate change and legal approaches. Orla sets out the scale of the Climate Crisis and what Ireland needs to do to really reduce carbon emissions, to decarbonise, while ensuring a just transition. Orla explains about a right to the environment, what it means and how citizens need to keep the pressure on Governments to make substantive changes in our economies. She also explains that we need to prioritise care, and using an eco-feminist approach, change to cooperative approaches to our society and economy. Addressing climate targets and achieving a low carbon society can achieve a better quality of life for us all.
