Event description

Description

Mrs. Robinson has led an extraordinary life. A native of Ballina Co. Mayo, Mrs. Robinson’s education brought her to Dublin, Paris, Harvard and latterly the King’s Inn becoming a barrister before being elected Ireland’s youngest ever Senator at the age of 25.

In 1990 she was elected the 7th President of Ireland. As an expert of Irish constitutional law, Mrs. Robinson not only transformed the role of high office but sowed seeds of modernist ideas that have since grown to form today’s Irish psyche.

In 1997 she joined the U.N. spending five years as High Commissioner for Human Rights.

Since departing the role in 2002, Mrs. Robinson has been appointed a special envoy on Climate Change representing the U.N. at numerous global summits.

Most recently, Mrs. Robinson has set up her own foundation advocating ‘Climate Justice’ for the poorest and most vulnerable peoples of the world.

Now, with climate change dominating the agenda more than ever before, Mrs. Robinson joins us to reflect on the lessons of her life, career and to impress upon us why it is so important to empower the poorest people and countries in their efforts to achieve sustainable and people-centered development.
