You will find the following at Climate Fest:
ReCreate reuse unwanted items to make something useful, amazing and inspiring. It is all about fostering our inner creatives for all ages while contributing to the circular economy and taking climate action by reducing what we throw away. Join them at one of their workshops on the day and be inspired.
Looking to nature, in one of our most beautiful parks, heritage expert Dale Treadwell will take you around Tymon Park Wood on a breath-taking biodiversity tour with plenty of hidden attractions.
Making changes to how we move is key to climate action. ESB e-bikes will be on hand with their new bikes, recently launched in South Dublin, offering us a new climate friendly way to move around.
Returning to the circular economy, social enterprise Recycle IT will talk to us about the climate importance of recycling our old tech, while the Stop Food Waste team will be showing us just how damaging food waste is to climate change. Make a simple climate impact through what you buy and what you don’t throw out.
South Dublin’s Climate Team will also be on hand to offer general advice alongside some of the County’s Sustainable Energy Communities, offering you useful information on how communities can work together to save money, and how you can get involved. The Local Authority Water Programme (LAWPRO) team will also be there with a focus on South Dublin’s historic rivers, and our future engagement with them as a climate action.
Native Events will deliver the amazing Living Lab Community Hub, a space for our collaborators to speak on what climate action means to them. Come and relax in the community hub and be inspired.
Taking place on the last day of Dublin Climate Action Week and closing South Dublin County Council’s week of events, Climate Fest plans to bring climate action to life in front of our eyes. It counts if we’re all Taking Action Together.
Enter via the Castletymon Road Entrance and find us next to the car park.
There is a food and craft market on the day from 11am.
