Green Recovery Working Group

The aims of this group is to bring diverse stakeholders together to explore a multiagency response to achieve its mission, using the 17 SDGs as a touchstone and building on Permaculture and One Planet Living Frameworks.

We are a group of PPN members and individuals with an interest in addressing environmental concerns in County Galway, in order to improve both people and planetary health and wellbeing, increasing happiness, resilience and sustainability for Galway Communities. Our Mission is to increase ecosystems and community health and well-being  by initiating a regenerative bioregional action plan, focusing on protecting the environment and fostering biodiversity while taking action to sustainably support local livelihoods and reducing carbon emissions.

Purpose: We aim to establish, drive and monitor action on bioregional regeneration, climate change mitigation and adaptation, and climate and social justice such that effective action on each informs all local plans and policies, and to stimulate and enable local organisations in the community, public and private sector to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and address ecosystems degradation and biodiversity loss.

Expert forum in place and meeting on a regular basis to plan and track progress towards a sustainable, resilient Galway.

A rolling regenerative action plan for a sustainable, resilient Galway in place and promoted.

A positive mapping scheme in place for community groups, companies and organisations taking steps to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions and address biodiversity loss.
