Great Turnout at the #Councils4ClimateAction Public Events
The Dublin Local Authorities received an overwhelming response from the public to their #Councils4ClimateAction events that took place throughout Dublin this month.
These events, which took place in various locations in Dublin City Council, Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council, Fingal County Council and South Dublin County Council, had a huge turnout from members of the public.
The #Councils4ClimateAction information events were organised with the support of Codema as part of the public consultation process for the four Dublin Local Authorities’ Climate Change Action Plans, which runs until the 25th of March 2019.
The events showed how climate change and greenhouse gas emissions continue to affect Dublin and how the Councils propose to deal with these issues. These events also included a range of information stands where the public could get advice on everything from saving energy in their homes to reducing their waste to measuring their carbon footprint, such as:
- Demonstrations of the Home Energy Saving Kit
- Energy saving advice from the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland
- 30-second cycle challenge with BleeperBike
- Electric car test drives
- Composting demonstrations and info on reducing your waste
- Youth groups such as Comhairle na nÓg
Members of the public are encouraged to make a submission before March 25th - click here for details on submitting to your local authority.
