The Community Climate Action Programme supports community groups across Cork City to work out how each one can play a meaningful part locally to tackle the climate crisis and biodiversity loss.
The Ballincollig programme consists of 6 sessions in person of 2 hours each week starting Thursday, November 11 from 7:15 – 9:15 pm.
Session 1: Getting to know each other and the programme, and identifying local resources available to the group.
Sessions 2-5: These 4 sessions cover 2 topics per session, with the facilitator presenting current information and resources, and also the group having lots of conversations and then coming up with ideas of what actions the community could take on each topic.
The topics are Waste, Consumption, Food, Water, Energy, Travel, Biodiversity and Nature-based solutions.
Session 6: Sifting through the ideas that have come out of previous sessions to decide which are most realistic to take further, and what will be needed to make them happen.
Following the last session, the facilitator will provide a report back to the group and will be available to offer some additional support on the actions the group has decided on.
