Event Registration Now Open for #DCAW21
18th August, 2021
We are delighted to announce that the event programme and online registration have launched for Dublin’s first Climate Action Week (#DCAW21), which takes place from Monday 13th to Sunday 19th September 2021. A wide range of online and in-person climate action events are now open for registration at www.dublinclimateactionweek.ie and include a great selection of Codema events covering topics such as Sustainable Energy Communities, home energy upgrades, district heating and much more.
Dublin Climate Action Week is being organised in partnership with Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council, South Dublin County Council, Dublin City Council, Fingal County Council, the Dublin Climate Action Regional Office (CARO) and Codema, who are all working together to host a wide range of events during the week, covering the themes of Energy and Buildings, Transport, Flood Resilience, Nature Based Solutions, Resource Management and Citizen Engagement.
The aim of Dublin Climate Action Week 2021 is to highlight the Dublin region’s climate action progress, demonstrate the leadership role of the four Dublin Local Authorities and inspire action among citizens.
The recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Climate Change 2021 Report categorically underlines the need for urgent action on climate change by all sectors of society. One of the highlights of the DCAW21 Programme includes a Climate Action Panel Discussion with the Chief Executives of the four Dublin local authorities, taking place online on Tuesday 14th September 2021 at 10am. A number of online film screenings are planned, and outdoor climate film screenings will take place at venues across Dublin. There are also a range of family events, including workshops for children and guided walks in public parks.
