Green Foundation IrelandThe Climate Gathering originated as a project known as the “Western World Convention”. In January 2012 Green Foundation Ireland began working with a group of Irish experts in climate policy, mediation and problem-solving to assess whether Ireland could be used as a gathering place for a new interdisciplinary network of leaders addressing the climate challenge. The project has been funded by the Tony Ryan Trust, a philanthropic foundation set up as a legacy of the founder of Ryanair, Europe’s largest airline.
