Gore to speak in Dublin at hunger summit

Former US vice-president Al Gore will come to Dublin next month to speak at a conference on world hunger.

The Government is hosting the conference on hunger, nutrition and climate justice with the Mary Robinson Foundation from April 15 to 16. It is being held at Dublin Castle as part of Ireland's EU Presidency.

Mr Gore is a campaigner on climate change and the environment and featured in the award-winning 'An Inconvenient Truth' documentary about his efforts to educate citizens about global warming.

President Michael D Higgins, Tanaiste Eamon Gilmore, and former President Mary Robinson are among the many global leaders and policy-makers who will contribute to the conference.
