The Sustainable Communities Programme, run by SECAD and VOICE, programme asks communities to think about what they want for the future of their town. To ask themselves questions such as ‘What do I cherish about where I live and how can I ensure it is still there in the future?’ ‘Who are the people in our communities, and what do they need? ‘What are the challenges faced by our community, and how can we overcome these?’
The SECAD Sustainable Communities Training Programme is a FREE programme aimed at community groups, volunteers, businesses, young people and individuals who are interested in developing and nurturing sustainability within their local communities. Funded by the LEADER (2014-2020) Programme, the initiative will support participating communities to identify their sustainability goals, while helping them to develop a community plan that strives for social, environmental and economic benefits for all.
The programme starts with a series of workshops addressing key sustainability themes starting with Green Enterprise and continuing each week to include Biodiversity and Nature Connection, Sustainable Town Planning, Circular Economy, Sustainable Energy and Transport, Sustainable Agriculture.Tags: #CitizenEngagement community Ireland Sustainability
