Voices Rising Conversations
Saturday 2.15 - 3.00 - ‘A Sense of Place’
Fostering a sense of place and valuing heritage should be seen as positive actions which contribute to the sustainability and resilience of our local areas. How can we do this?

How do we navigate change, have impact and remain buoyant in the face of so many challenges? Professional surfer Fergal Smith (Moy Gardens); Davie Philip (Cultivate, Cloughjordan Ecovillage), one of the UK’s best skateboarders in the 80s; and Matt Mills (Goleen Harbour), an early champion mountain biker, discuss their current sustainability projects with food sovereignty advocate Fergal Anderson (Leaf and Root).
Sunday 2.15 - 3.00 - ‘Get Involved’ What will you do?
