Celebrating local action for Heritage
Join us for a celebration of local community heritage action featuring showcases, workshops, fieldtrips, networking and a community feast. This one day event will include training workshops for community groups where they can ask questions and share solutions on locally led heritage conservation projects while having the opportunity to network with others. With contributions from the Burrenbeo Conservation volunteers and Heritage Keepers programme participants, groups will be encouraged to showcase their projects while considering wider questions around climate change, biodiversity loss, community fragmentation and more. The event will also include the launch of the Clare Stories of Change exhibition where Clare based changemakers will share their climate actions
