About this Event

The Climate Ambassador programme are delighted to present this exciting event as part of #ClimateActionWeek! Join us to hear sketches and stand-up comedy from professional comedians, as they give us some tips on how to communicate climate change while using a little bit of humour, where appropriate.

ECOmedy is an initiative to engage in conversation about climate change through the medium of comedy with the aim to make the subject matter more accessible, helping to increase awareness while having a little fun.

ECOmedy event takes place on Saturday 17th October at 12pm!

Please Note: Altough the content of this event will be family friendly, due to child safety considerations, we ask that this is an over 18's only event.

Anne Gill is an actor and comedian who has worked in Ireland, the US and the UK. Anne studied at Trinity College and RADA before starting her professional career. She is relatively new to the world of climate comedy, but has found that sharing our thoughts and feelings about the issues, and helping people to approach the often difficult conversations with humor is so important as we deal with the crisis before us.
