Saoirse Exton: Imeacht Aeráide
Saoirse is an 18-year-old climate justice activist from Limerick. She went on strike from school in 2019 when she founded a local group of the Friday the Future movement. Saoirse thinks that we have to change our international economy to fight against colonial ideas that put profit above the welfare of people and the planet. In 2021, she was one of the 100 winners of the Rise program as she rewrites Irish folklore to bring stories about queer women and people to the fore.
