Other Environmental Initiatives

  • National Tree Week:
    National Tree Week is an initiative by the National Tree Council of Ireland, which celebrates the importance of trees in our life.
     
  • Transition Towns:
    The Transition Initiative is a local level response to the imminent pressures of climate change and peak oil. The aim is to support communities that want to take positive environmental action, as well as increase their ability to endure the inevitability of peak oil through decreasing energy usage.
  • Energy Neighbourhoods:
    This is a joint initiative between the North Tipperary and South Tipperary County Councils. The competition aims to promote the objectives of Ireland's Kyoto commitments by communities placing a bet with each other to save 8% on energy in one heating period.
