STAND News Interviews: Live from Glasgow

STAND News Interviews live from Glasgow! We catch up with USI’s Caoimhe O’Carroll and chat about her experience so far at the climate conference, COP26.

Stand.ie was set up in 2014 in response to the desire among students and young people in Ireland to learn more about justice and equality issues and take action. Our participants come from a range of backgrounds but all have one thing in common: the desire to bring about positive change in the world. We are a programme by the not-for-profit organisation Suas Educational Development.



Standing against
injustice and inequality in all its forms

People in Ireland and all over the globe are fighting for a more equal and just society. We are committed to sharing their stories and adding our voices to theirs.

Standing together
with those who are oppressed

Millions of people worldwide are facing intolerance and persecution, fleeing violence and war, living in poverty and dying of hunger. We are committed to showing solidarity with them.

Standing up
for a better, fairer world.

Our actions have the power to change the world. We are committed to exploring the ways in which we can all come together as global citizens to take action for social and environmental justice.
