Philip Lee is proud to support the Dublin Climate Dialogues taking place on May 19 and 20. This Irish-initiated virtual conference will bring together global leaders across policy, finance and technology to form a declaration on how to turn net-zero pledges into concrete energy policies and actions to be adopted at COP26. The declaration will be handed to the COP Presidency at the end of the conference. This event emphasises the severity of the climate emergency facing the world, and the need for action at this year’s COP in November.

Former President of the European Parliament, Pat Cox, will chair the conference. Over the two days he will be joined by speakers including Lord Deben, Chairman of the UK Committee on Climate Change, Mary Robinson, Adjunct Professor for Climate Justice in Trinity College Dublin and Chair of the Elders, and Damilola Ogunbiyi, CEO and Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General for Sustainable Energy for All.

The Irish government is engaging with the event with Ministerial participation and support from the Department of Foreign Affairs. Participating on the day will be Simon Coveney, the Irish Minister for Foreign Affairs and Minister for Defence, Paschal Donohoe, the Irish Finance Minister and President of the Eurogroup, and Eamon Ryan, Ireland’s Minister for Transport.
