This is largely achieved through community environmental improvement initiatives - supported by training sessions, action based environmental activities and field trips.
The purpose of An Taisce Green Communities is to deliver monthly action based training events and field trips for community volunteer groups. The majority of the training events will be held in and around the Dublin Area. Generally the events are as wide ranging as the groups themselves, but they are all based on environmental, horticultural, and natural history topics and skills that are relevant to people living in Ireland. With each event being of a different nature, and in a different location, they offer a continuous stream of imaginative activity that can usefully be engaged in.
By joining the Green Communities Programme today your Resident's Association, Tidy Towns Group, Community Garden, or other community group can join in with all of this activity, whilst also networking and the sharing ideas and plans with other community groups and volunteers.
