Meath County Council is committed to leading on Climate Action

Meath County Council will this week share information about our climate actions, plans and ambitions across our social media and other platforms.

Climate change is the defining issue of our time, and we want to make sure the public can be confident that their council is taking action and leading in the response.

A new report published this week shows that Meath County Council and all local authorities have been for some time undertaking a vast range of actions to tackle climate change and to promote climate action within our communities.

Meath County Council has been proactive in many areas including energy efficiency, sustainable transport development, flood risk management, water conservation, waste management, nature-based solutions and public engagement.

In 2019, Meath County Council published its Climate Action Strategy. The main purpose of the Strategy is to outline practical actions that will help County Meath adapt to and mitigate against climate change, and specifically across the key sectors over which Meath County Council exercise at least some level of operational control or influence. You can read that strategy here.

Meath County Council has also launched the Meath Climate Academy programme. This initiative, the first of its kind in the country, will see a series of climate action training workshops delivered to a number of stakeholders. The first free workshop ‘Citizen Climate Leader Training’, will take place on Saturday, January 25th at Buvinda House, Navan.  To book your place contact the Climate Action Team at climateaction@meathcoco.ie or call 046 9097203.
