Interning with Global Action Plan

Having been with GAP for a month now I have been in a great position to see them organise, set up and start the 2012 Green Living Programme. There will be 5 courses that run throughout 2012 two of which have already begun. For me it has been really positive experience to see how different groups within the Ballymun community come together to learn more about what they can do to help themselves and the environment. With the two groups we have began by looking at waste management and how they can reduce their output, which in turn helps the environment and has money saving benefits. I look forward to the next few weeks to see what GAP brings to the sessions and how the groups use and take on board the new information. A thought to hold until next time “Most of us are familiar with recycle and reusing, but how often do we think of the third R – REDUCE? ‘Reduce’ is probably the most important of the three Rs because, if we reduced, it would limit the need to recycle and reuse.” <
