Sustainable Skerries, First Public Awareness Meeting
Wednesday 6th of January saw the first event in the Sustainable Skerries public awareness campaign which will run for the next few months. The awareness meeting was held in St Patricks Senior School, and was very well attended by a broad cross-section of Skerries people. We were also pleased to welcome some of our local politicans.
The evening kicked off with a showing of the “Power of Community” video from “Cultivate”, ( www.cultivate.ie ), followed by a 15 minute presentation on Peak Oil and Climate Change.
Mr Tom Hussey, Fingal Co Co parks Superintendant gave us an update on the allotments and some of the logistical problems involved. He was very positive in his approach and certainly gave us all the feeling that he was 100% behind the project.
Our next Awareness Meeting will take place on Thursday 25th March at 8pm, at St Patricks Senior National School. The topic up for discussion will be Food issues for Skerries in a Post Peak Oil world. It promises to be very relevant to Skerries and should be a lot of fun.
