A Report from Climate Fest Castlebar 2019

Climate Fest Castlebar was born out of desire to bring an action-focused Climate Change event to the locality of Castlebar so that the phrase ‘act locally and think globally’ could become a reality in local people’s efforts to play their part in averting the ‘Climate Change Emergency’ facing our world today.

The venue was GMIT Castlebar, the title of the event ‘Climate Fest’ and the date, Saturday 27th September, the last Saturday of Creation time, which runs from 1st September – 4th October was decided. The workshop topics were: ‘Sustainable Fashion’, ‘Tips for Sorting, Recycling and Reducing Food Waste in the Home’, Energy Hacks for the Home’ and ‘Becoming an Eco community/Eco Parish’ – these appealed to different age groups and interests.
