Places are limited. For more information or to reserve a free place contact Davie Philip.

The session is designed to demonstrate the potential of new ideas that have been successful in other parts of Ireland, explore ways that people might cooperate better while protecting the environment and making their local community more resilient and sustainable. If you are active in the development of your community, involved in a community or cooperative enterprise, want to support local producers or want to be engaged in making your community a better place to live in any way, this workshop will be of interest.

The workshops are being supported by the Local Agenda 21 Environmental Partnership Fund, which is funded by North Tipperary County Council, Kerry County Council and Waterford City Council and the Department of the Environment, Heritage and Local Government. The workshops contribute to Get Involved, a sustainable community initiative developed by two local newspaper associations – NNI Local and the RNPAI - and is supported by SEAI.

Chris Chapman and Davie Philip from Cultivate Living and Learning will facilitate the session. Chris Chapman is an experienced facilitator with specialist knowledge in the area of community development and sustainability. Davie Philip has over 15 years experience in developing and delivering training for community change makers.
