The First Skerries Eco Night, November 2022

The first Skerries Eco Night took place on Tue 22/11/2022 in Skerries Mills. Read a full report here: “The first Skerries Eco Night will not be the last

Our next plan is to have a series of focused events on individual topics, and then (hopefully) the first Skerries Eco Festival Fri 1-Sun 3 September.

The Skerries Community Association and Sustainable Skerries had sent out invites, both directly and to the general public. After just over a week, we had so many RSVPs that we had to close sign-up. We’re blown away with the response! This will not be last such event…

Do keep an eye on this page, where we will post more information and outcomes over the next couple of weeks. 💚 This is a great result, and very promising for Skerries!

Here is the original invite:

Dear friends,

The vision of the Skerries Community Association (SCA) is to “safeguard and enhance all that is good about our community and environment.” 

Never before has this been as important as it is now, given the challenges the planet faces.

So how can we here in Skerries tread more lightly into the future?

To explore this, we would love you to join us at our first Skerries Eco Night, to be held on Tuesday 22 November 2022 in Skerries Mills, starting at 8 pm sharp. 

This will be an enjoyable opportunity to learn more about existing and future eco initiatives in our community, and what they have to offer you and your organisation / group / club / friends / family. 

Please confirm that you hope to join us by clicking this link as Skerries Mills need to know the numbers for refreshments:

A Little Background

This event is one of the outcomes of our recent Skerries Eco Town Training Course, attended by over twenty people from a number of local groups.

We secured funding through LEADER for this course, which has given us this unique opportunity to offer a six-week online course in combination with a weekend visit to Cloughjordan, Ireland’s eco village. More details are in this blogpost. We will put our main take-aways into a separate blogpost soon.

We gratefully acknowledge the support of the EAFRD
– The European Agriculturan Fund for Rural Development: Europe investing in rural areas –
and the Irish Department of Rural and Community Development.
