Our History


Since establishing in 1995, Global Action Plan has delivered The Green Living Programme throughout Ireland. This programme provides practical information on how to use energy efficiently, reduce water and waste, and shop ethically.


GAP IN BALLYMUN: Since 2000, GAP has managed an environmental programme for the community of Ballymun, Dublin as part of Europe’s largest regeneration project. Today GAP is still actively involved in the Ballymun community, with ongoing community gardening at the Glas Community Garden and environmental education initiatives in place.




GAP has since expanded its reach further, delivering diverse environmental programmes and workshops to communities, schools and businesses throughout Ireland. Collaborations with statutory and semi-state agencies, local authorities, local partnership companies, community groups and other charities have enabled this growth.Global Action Plan works with schools to turn pupils into global citizens


A member of the Irish Environmental Network and the Environmental Pillar, GAP Ireland is part-funded by the IEN Core Funding Grant through the Department of Communications, Climate Action & Environment.
