Dublin Climate Action Week is back for 2022!
15th June, 2022
We are really excited to announce that Codema is once more helping to organise Dublin Climate Action Week 2022, which takes place from Monday 12th September to Saturday, 17th September.
The week, which is being organised and delivered by the partnership of South Dublin County Council, Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council, Dublin City Council, Fingal County Council, Codema and the Dublin Climate Action Regional Office (CARO), will showcase the ongoing efforts, ambitions and the collaborative approach of the four Dublin local authorities, in addressing climate action. A number of regional and local events covering a range of climate topics will be delivered as part of Dublin Climate Action Week 2022 and the full programme of events will be available in August on the DCAW22 website, at www.dublinclimateactionweek.ie.
Climate action is now at the forefront of policy making in Ireland. The enactment of the Climate Action and Low Carbon Development (Amendment) Act 2021, the publication of the national Climate Action Plan 2021 and each Council’s Climate Change Action Plan 2019-2024, demonstrate our ongoing commitment to move forward on climate action.
The agreed shared objectives of Dublin Climate Action Week are to:
- Demonstrate progress on the implementation of the four Dublin local authority Climate Change Action Plans, and a regional approach to climate action;
- Engage with a full range of partners to showcase efforts and innovation across sectors;
- Make climate action a ‘reality’ allowing citizens to see what climate action looks like;
- Promote this initiative so as to fully engage with EU and international cities and our climate peers; and
- Create a legacy so that this initiative can carry forward to subsequent years in a variety of ways.
The Cathaoirleach of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council, the Mayors of South Dublin County Council and Fingal County Council, and the Lord Mayor of Dublin City Council stated that, “Dublin Climate Action Week provides the citizens of the city and county with an opportunity to find out first-hand what their local authorities are doing to tackle climate change. We would also urge the citizens of Dublin to use Dublin Climate Action Week as an opportunity to find out more about climate change and to use the week to examine how they can live more sustainably. The full programme of events will be published in August on the dedicated website, www.dublinclimateactionweek.ie.”
CEO of Codema, Donna Gartland, said: "I am delighted that Codema is once again one of the organising partners of Dublin Climate Action Week, following on from the success of last year's programme. At Codema, we have always believed in the ‘think global, act local’ approach to climate action, and through Dublin Climate Action Week, we want to empower Dublin’s citizens and stakeholders to be part of the low-carbon transition, and hope the events lined up for September help to increase knowledge, facilitate new connections, and inspire participants to take action."
