Do you have a project or idea that could increase awareness of environmental issues in your local community or could help your community to become more sustainable?
If so, you may qualify for funding from the Local Agenda 21 Environmental Partnership Fund 2018. This fund promotes sustainable development by assisting small scale, non-profit environmental projects at local level.
Does your project qualify?
Projects should focus on environmental awareness and actions which complement national environmental policies such as those on waste, biodiversity, water conservation and climate change. A wide variety of projects have been supported in previous years, such as community gardens, compost schemes, rainwater harvesting, biodiversity projects, educational initiatives, etc. You can view lists of previously funded projects at http://dccae.gov.ie/en/environment/topics/environmental-protection-and-awareness/local-agenda-21-partnership-fund/
