Climate Dialogue Session in Leitrim
February 20, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Last December, Good Energies Alliance Ireland launched the CRÓGA report which looks at how an area such as Leitrim emits carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases and also absorbs carbon dioxide by its forests and other “sinks”.
Such a study can be transferred to other areas and is relevant to all rural counties in Ireland.
The overall picture is that currently we emit far more than we can offset by trees or other means.
Ireland, as a country in the EU, is committed to reduce its overall carbon emissions by 30% by 2030.
The big question is:”How do we reduce emissions in rural Ireland while developing resilient communities and improving the quality of life for all its people?”
Our new CRÓGA Climate Dialogue Session will take place in the Bush Hotel, Carrick-on-Shannon on Thursday 20th February at 7pm.
We will look at the three sectors of Housing, Transport and Agriculture and discuss ways of lowering emissions. Questions to be asked include:
What does the government target of retrofitting all houses to standard B2 (BER) mean on the ground? How can people afford this?
What is our vision for low-emissions transport in rural Ireland? How can we achieve this?
How can our farms become higher nature value while giving farmers just incomes?
Interested? Please come along and let your voice be heard. The event is free, all are welcome and refreshments will be served.
