GREEN Skibbereen CLG has announced plans to launch a major initiative in early 2021 for climate action and sustainability in West Cork when the group will announce it’s proposal for a new Centre of Excellence for Climate Action Sustainability in West Cork.
The group are currently pursuing EU H2020 funding for upgrading the facility and are working with prospective educational and community partners in Cork. The launch will take place online at a public webinar on February 1, at 7pm. A membership scheme and donor programme for the new centre will also be launched at this event.
“As we emerge from the Covid 19 pandemic, with hopeful news on the development and roll out of vaccines we feel that 2021 also offers the opportunity to build back better on sustainability and climate action,” said the group’s chairperson, Jim O’Donnell.
