Meaghan Carmody (Global Citizenship Coordinator)
Meaghan has worked in global citizenship education, campaigning and activism support for six years. She was previously Head of Movement-Building in Friends of the Earth Ireland, where she worked to develop activist capacity to work towards creating an Ireland on track to meet its goals according to climate justice principles. Her interest has evolved over the years to encompass a political-economic analysis of the reasons underpinning the climate crisis, leading her to explore the root causes of and solutions to global inequality. She is critical of many of the principles which underpin today's economy, and has explored these in detail via her MA in International Political Econony in University College Dublin. She is an occasional lecturer with the School of Social Justice in UCD and Connect the Dots.
