Cultivating Liveable Communities

village-gathering-on-square-198Ennis, Limerick City, Nenagh & Portarlington

A series of free workshops, delivered by Cultivate in partnership with four Local Authorities, are being held during April 2013. These explore how we can nurture our communities to be healthier and more sustainable, backed by local economies that are stronger and more resilient.

The workshops focus on how people and groups can work with and learn from each other to sustain the economic, social and environmental well-being of our local areas. The methodology used in the workshops is participatory with an objective to facilitate collaboration towards enhancing the liveability of our villages, towns and city neighbourhoods.

Participants will also be offered a Liveable Communities Fieldtrip to Cloughjordan, the rural village in North Tipperary, which last year won the national Green Community award and was voted the second best village to live in Ireland by the Irish Times. Cloughjordan is one of Ireland's nominees for the 2013 International UN Liveable Communities Award.

If you want to support local producers or are engaged in making your community a better place to live in any way, this will be of interest.

This project is supported by the Local Agenda 21 Partnership Fund.
