Global Action Plan Ireland Strategy 2016: One Earth. Act now.
Our goal is to inspire and support everyone throughout Ireland to take practical steps towards a more sustainable lifestyle. We want to support people throughout Ireland to transition to a sustainable way of living that is within our planet’s ecological limits.
We do this by empowering people to create practical and innovative climate friendly solutions that inspire action in homes, communities and workplaces.
Our programmes challenge the barriers and embrace opportunities for behaviour change by providing support, mentoring and education on a broad range of environmental, climate and global citizenship themes. We focus on growing the skills, values and confidence that enable action.
Our programmes are evidence-based and designed to promote social inclusiveness and ensure that those who are most disadvantaged or under-served have the support and tools they require to participate in climate action in communities nationwide.
Our 2016 strategy focused on four main themes: water, energy, food and waste, working with communities of place and of interest.
The strategy served as a blueprint for GAP’s development over the past number of years, and helped us in our work where we hope to empower as many communities as possible to adopt a greener lifestyle – and thereby play their role in protecting planet Earth.
We are currently working on developing a new, more up-to-date strategy.
