For the first time, Dublin’s four local authorities and the Dublin energy agency Codema have joined together to develop Climate Change Action Plans as a collaborative response to the impact that climate change is having, and will continue to have, on the Dublin Region and its citizens.
Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council have come up with a Draft Climate Change Action Plan 2019-2024, which sets out how the Council will improve energy efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions in its own buildings and operations, while making Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown a more climate-resilient County with engaged and informed citizens.
There is a public consultation period for this Action Plan, and it runs from 11 February – 25 March 2019, during which time the public is encouraged to make submissions.
As part of this public consultation process, Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council and Codema are organising the #Councils4ClimateAction public information event on Thursday 21 February from 3pm – 7pm in the National Maritime Museum, Dún Laoghaire. This event will give the public the chance to see how the Council is climate-proofing its services across a number of key areas.
In advance of the event on the 21st February, Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council will also be holding an informal public information event in Parish Hall, Holy Cross Church, Dundrum on Wednesday 13 February from 3pm – 7pm covering the same topics as the Dún Laoghaire event.
