Funded by Dublin Rural LEADER, the “Community Based Climate Adaptation and Mitigation Training for Rural Dublin” programme will be delivered by Global Action Plan, in partnership with the Rediscovery Centre, the Community Resource Network Ireland, Sustainable Energy Community Mentors and FH Wetlands Systems Ltd.
These organisations have come together to develop a complimentary training programme for community groups and interested individuals in rural parts of Dublin, to help them understand the complexities of climate change and the many ways in which local climate action can be effective.
The community climate action training programme is designed to inspire individuals and community groups to discover their power as agents of environmental progress. The course will cover key topics including transport & the environment, energy use and renewable energy, waste & the circular economy, growing & groundskeeping, green procurement, water & climate change, and planning for action.
Some of the training modules will take the form of in-person sessions, but there are also online sessions and two field trips to groundbreaking initiatives in the Dublin area. The first training sessions will take place on the evening of 13 September in Rathcoole, and 14 September in Newcastle.
