Climate Change People Change

Here on the farm, we’re one of four partners in a European project looking at climate change — with Good Energies Alliance Ireland which is based in Leitrim, Legambiente which is based in Italy and DOOR from Croatia. Our project, Climate Change People Change, is funded by the Erasmus+ programme and we’re working together on how to inform and educate young people on the now critical issue of climate change. We visited Zagreb, Croatia in October 2016 — our first gathering to meet the partners, agree a timeline and have our early discussions on the topic. Next up was a meeting here on the farm at the end of January 2017 and we began the serious planning of our youth trip to Croatia in July 2017. We also celebrated St. Brigid’s Day on the farm, with stories, song and an opportunity to make St. Brigid’s crosses. Check out the photos in the Gallery. We’ll meet in Rome in May to finalise the activity in July.
This is a first for us here on the farm, but we hope, the first of many such activities!
