Clare County Council Working with Community Groups and Festivals

The projects undertaken by Clare County Council in 2015 had a broad reach and presented an opportunity to promote extensive engagement across many sectors to promote behavioural change including:

  • the greening of festivals
  • a reusable water bottle project
  • workshops to raise awareness on resource efficiency & waste prevention.

Building on the popularity of running events a highly successful intervention with reusable drinks bottles was undertaken with two events in the county.

The county council worked with partners such as:

  • Stop Food Waste Programme
  • Inis Fest Organisers
  • Doonbeg Tidy Towns
  • Declan Hayes Memorial Run Organisers

The three workshops proved very effective and a large attendance was secured, including many from local community groups and Tidy Towns committees.
