Join our fascinating and lively panel discussion which explores what we can do as individuals and communities to address the increasing challenges posed by climate change; what are the ways forward; how do we re-connect with our planet and with our environment.

Praise for An Irish Atlantic Rainforest by Eoghan Daltun

An inspiring vision ... Daltun brings us on a journey into the history and ecology of Ireland's woodlands and provides an inspiring vision of their social, ecological and cultural potential if allowed to thrive again
- Manchán Magan

'This is an inspirational book. Eoghan Daltun's mission to restore an Irish rainforest has already inspired thousands … Eoghan's evocative descriptions of the temperate rainforest he discovered growing on the Beara Peninsula, his knowledge of history and place, and his wisdom and insights into how to repair this damaged ecosystem, mean this book should be urgently read by politicians and the public alike.'
- Guy Shrubsole, environmental campaigner and author of The Lost Rainforests of Britain

'Eoghan Daltun's wildly inspirational memoir of adopting a slice of Ireland's coast and snatching it from ecological degradation is an invaluable and timely revelation.’
- Caroline Fraser, author of Prairie Fires: The American Dreams of Laura Ingalls Wilder
