It featured Erica Meijers (Co-Editor, Bureau de Helling) who will speak about “Marx, Religion and Politics” and a discussion about the book, with Nuala Ahern (Co-Editor, Green Foundation Ireland), John Barry (Professor of Green Political Economy at Queen’s University Belfast) and Erica Meijers.

The debate was organised with the help of the Centre for Sustainability and Environmental Governance in Queen’s University Belfast.
