SunRise for Climate - September 21st

Join our next SunRise for Climate gathering on Saturday September 21st - the day after the Global Climate Strike. Let's take some time together to unwind, recoup and reflect after all the organising and mobilising in the lead up to the strike.

In June we hosted just one gathering in Dublin, but we realise that's not possible for everyone - and we want to share this moment with all of you. So we are inviting communities to get together all across Ireland to get up at sunrise and gather somewhere beautiful in nature in your area.

There are no words to describe the atmosphere on June 21st, when almost 200 people came together for our first sunrise swim. It was surreal, it was like magic. And that stuff is infectious, so we are doing it again and we want to share it will all of you!

In fact, we want to do this four times a year to mark the seasons and connect with nature. Let's get everyone who's taking a stand to protect the future of our planet together to enjoy and celebrate the beauty of nature, and the global community that is rising to protect it.

We often feel like we're all alone in this fight, we are living in a society that has us isolated and disconnected us from one another and from nature. But there is great power when we come together. And nature provides all the good stuff to keep us going too.

Please note if you are participating in a sunrise swim: we all swim at our own risk. You can dip your toe if that makes you happy. Just come along and be part of this beautiful moment together.

This is a free event, but you can make a small donation after registration to support Friends of the Earth's work on climate.

Let's rise for climate!
