This October and November 2023, there will be free Community Climate Action Training for rural Dún-Laoghaire-Rathdown in Ballyogan. You can sign up here. I am happy to see that the programme will be rolled out in Ballyogan, as unpredictable weather patterns have a potentially greater impact on people living in rural areas.
There’ll be different themed sessions, so pick and choose which ones you’re interested in. The field trips sound really great too – I’d highly recommend booking your spot for the Rediscovery Centre field trip to Ballymun.
Here are all the sessions and field trips that are part of the programme:
- Climate Adaptation and Mitigation. Thursday 5th October 2023 at 7pm, in Samuel Beckett Civic Centre.
