Climate Change Lecture Series and Presentations

The EPA's Climate Change lecture series has been running since late 2007, bringing a range of Irish and international speakers to the Round Room in The Mansion House, Dublin to update Irish audiences on the science of climate change, and possible responses to it.

The EPA, as part of the National Dialogue on Climate Action, hosted Dr Artur Runge-Metzger of the EU Commission who presented a lecture titled: The European Green Deal – Towards a climate-neutral EU by 2050.
