Cavan Communities 4 Climate Action

Irish LEADER funds raise community awareness about tackling climate change challenges.

Project summary: 

A LEADER Local Development Strategy in Ireland’s Cavan County identified needs to raise awareness about the impacts of climate change on daily life. The ‘Cavan Communities 4 Climate Action’ training programme was developed to enable participants to build knowledge and skills which can help make rural communities more climate resilient and environmentally sustainable.

Project results: 

Over 50 participants completed the training and are now community ambassadors for climate action in Cavan County with improved climate literacy and understanding of local climate action.

A new citizen network for local climate action was established by the project.
