The Greener Living course brings us together in our communities to look at how we can lessen our load on the planet by changing how we live. The course covers up to 8 main topics from what we buy and how we travel to how we connect with our communities.
The course addresses the nature of the climate and biodiversity emergency we are facing and how we need to respond to that as individuals and as communities. In doing so we draw on the Sustainable Development Goals.
In 2021, we have been running our Greener Living GAP programme online with local groups around the county. Recent and ongoing courses in Bandon, Charleville, Blackpool and East Cork.
