Local Authorities

LAPN aims to build capacity in local authorities for promoting waste prevention for the benefit of their regions. Find out more about what we’ve been up to and how you can get involved.

Local Authorities & Sustainability

Local authorities play integral roles in all of our communities. With strong platforms, extensive connections and power to effect local change, local authorities are extremely well placed to that are helpful when it comes to support and initiate positive changes in the community. 

Why a local authority network?

Staff within local authorities have been working for years to improve Ireland’s sustainability and resource use.

LAPN was set up to facilitate and encourage staff within different local authorities to share knowledge and collaborate on projects involving waste prevention and resource efficiency. The network allows us all to work together towards sustainability.
