There’s an incredible groundswell in ecological thinking emerging here in Ireland, and globally right across the spectrum of human endeavour, and I’m inspired to make my own small contribution to it.

I’ll be on the road a lot over the summer at these upcoming events which are all deeply connected by this common ecological theme.

Please join me if you can.
