In 2021, Galway City Community Network was selected as one of the pilot areas for the Climate Conversation initiative supported by the Department of the Environment, Climate and Communications and the Department of Rural and Community Development as part of the Government’s National Dialogue on Climate Action.
GCCN held a Climate Conversation on the 15th of April. The workshop was attended by representatives of organisations from the community, voluntary and environmental sectors in Galway City and represented issues such as disability, Traveller community, young people, socio-economic disadvantage, as well as environmental concerns. The following is a note of the outcomes of the discussion.
The report drew on previous work undertaken by GCCN and outlined in the GCCN Policies and Positions document and the GCCN Submission to the Galway City Development Plan process. The text in italics are quotes from participants.
