About the Events & Promotions Group

The role of the Events and Promotions Group is to encourage, and inform our community while also involving them in decision making that will ensure we can work together to achieve the goals of Sustianable Clonakilty.

We have run information evenings on subjects like:

Growing your own vegetables

Making your home more comfortable and energy efficient

Making your own renewable energy systems

 

Guest speakers have included:

Father Sean McDonagh, noted Irish environmentalist

Professor Peadar Kirby, University of Limerick

Dr Colin Campbell, Peak Oil expert

Oisin Coughlan from Friends of the Earth

Duncan Stewart

and many others willing to share their time and expertise.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We encourage everyone to have a voice and frequently our meetings break into small groups to facilitate this.

Occasionally we make very enjoyable site visits.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We also make submissions to local government, and other agencies, on policy and planning from time to time, as well as applications for grants.

 

Contact us if you are interested in joining us, you would be very welcome.
