(1) Action on Global Goals Programme

Funded by Irish Aid, Action on Global Goals has been created to engage adult community groups on the Global Goals. Through a free interactive workshop you will learn how local action can lead to global impact. A toolkit has been developed which will further enable your community or youth group to educate others throughout your community. Exploring these goals will highlight how our changing climate impacts poverty locally and worldwide. These are necessary steps in order to work towards a sustainable community. Book in before 30 September to avoid disappointment. Find out more or contact Áine to schedule a workshop at aine@globalactionplan.ie.
