Hello and welcome to our course on Climate Justice. I’m sure by now, you are all well aware of the climate crisis. However, what may be less known is the impact it is going to have on human life. This course aims to illustrate the physical, political and economic consequences of our failed action and how it disproportionately falls on those already most vulnerable. We then examine the concept of a just transition which was popularised and led by the International labour movement and Ireland’s ambition in moving from the biggest polluter to a leader in climate action. Finally, this is a constructive topic and includes advice on how we can each do our bit to minimise the global crisis. It covers a broad range of tips so regardless of your lifestyle, or time, there is something for everyone!

Welcome to our course on Mindfulness. We all know how hectic life today can be. Often we are so busy we simply forget to slow down, breathe and just be present. FSU, CWU and Mandate know the principles of mindfulness are essential for a happy and peaceful life and we want to share these with you!
The course is free - but the benefits of mindfulness are invaluable! Give it a try and aim to incorporate even just one of the exercises into your daily life and feel the results yourself.
