#Councils4ClimateAction Public Event Continue in South Dublin County Tomorrow 19 February, 2019

The third #Councils4ClimateAction public information event will take place in the headquarters of South Dublin County Council at County Hall, Tallaght, tomorrow, Tuesday 19 February, 2019 from 6pm to 9pm.

This event, which is fully open to the public, will show how climate change and greenhouse gas emissions continue to affect Dublin and how the Council proposes to deal with these issues. There will also be range of information stands where the public can get advice on everything from saving energy in their homes to reducing their waste to measuring their carbon footprint.

Mayor of South Dublin County Council, Cllr Mark Ward, will officially launch the public event at 6pm. Speaking in advance of the event tomorrow, Mayor Ward said “I am very pleased that South Dublin County Council is being progressive in addressing the negative effects that climate change is having on our environment. This work has already begun; for example, last year we saw the launch of our Electric Vehicles, our first steps in the decarbonisation of the Council’s fleet.”

He continued, “The Council has identified five action areas that will assist us in South Dublin to reach the targets of our Plan. The action areas have many co-benefits, such as improved health through cleaner air and active travel, a better environment through habitat protection, and a stronger economy from new markets and job opportunities.”

The public event at County Hall, Tallaght follows one held by Dublin City Council on Saturday 16 March and Fingal County Council on 18 March. One final #Councils4ClimateAction public event is due to take place this Thursday, 21st February (Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council): 3-7pm, National Maritime Museum.

These #Councils4ClimateAction events are taking place during the public consultation process for the four Dublin Local Authorities’ Climate Change Action Plans, which runs until the 25 March.
