It is also in support of all our actions towards fighting the escalating issues of Climate Change and Bio Diversity collapse. Roll on the 20th and the Global Strike for Climate Action. Climate change is the biggest threat to our planet and we must act. Join us in Merrion Square. The evening will begin at 7.30pm with the film kicking off approx 8.15pm. The documentary is due to finish at 9.30pm. This is a ‘Leave-No-Trace' event. This means that you, the audience will be active participants in preserving this beautiful park and keeping it clean.
