Mary Robinson, Ex-President of Ireland

Mary Robinson fought for human rights throughout her whole career. In 2010 she was the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights. She is a member of the Club of Madrid, a group which works to promote Democracy world wide. She is also a member of a group of world leaders called The Elders which works to solve difficult world problems. This group includes individuals such as Nelson Mandela, and Archbishop Desmond Tutu. On Thursday evening she presented an address in which she discussed the relationship of global warming to the failure of traditional agricultural practices leading to hunger and famine particularly in Asia and Africa.
