Maynooth Social Justice Week 2023 – Climate Justice, Inequality and the Right to Housing

Organisation Maynooth University
Date 6th March 2023 12:00 PM (GMT)

Social Justice Week in Maynooth University is an annual collaborative project between students, staff, as well as other agencies aimed at raising awareness of global and national challenges, promoting social justice and challenging individuals to make a positive difference in the world around them.

The theme of this year’s Week is Solidarity. The committee feel the importance of this theme this year as we collectively face so many social and environmental challenges and in the tradition of social justice week call us all to action in solidarity with each other and for the struggles of others.

As you will see from this programme, the events this year highlight and address a wide array of social inequalities and concerns nationally and globally including racism, climate justice, rising energy costs, the housing and accommodation crisis, conflict, forced migration, the struggle for women’s rights and more. As in previous years, we see social justice themes across the faculties and the university in teaching and other core business, the programme show cases some of this work.

As part of the Maynooth University Social Justice Week 2023 the Department of Applied Social Studies invites you to a seminar/webinar to discuss the issues of climate, inequality and environmental justice and the right to housing. How they connect and intersect, what should a just transition involve, how delivering a right to housing can help achieve a just transition, how we need to adopt an intersectional approach to climate change and its impact on inequality, such as housing, gender, migration, and how we can nurture solidarity in responses to, and shape a just transition of solidarity and social justice.

Takes place in TSI 109, TSI Building Maynooth and online as a webinar. The webinar can be joined for free online.
