Event description

Description

The Day-to-Day Sustainability Festival forms part of Environ 2019 and will provide a unique opportunity for families, scientists, communities and the country’s leading sustainability practitioners and organisations to get together, to share ideas and to learn from each other. We all want to live more sustainably but can feel unsure and even disempowered as to what we can do at an individual level to have a positive impact on our shared environment. This family friendly event will highlight the relatively small but tangible actions that we can all take immediately in order to effect positive environmental change. From decisions around recycling, composting and water harvesting to practical steps on successful tree and wild garden planting to bee-keeping and wild life conservation, energy reduction, transport alternatives, eating seasonally and growing your own, and avoiding the use of plastics, this event will cover it all.

The Day-to-Day Sustainability Festival takes place at Delta Sensory Gardens (Website/Facebook) in Carlow town from 2-5pm on Monday April 15th. Delta is a wonderful space consisting of 16 interconnecting themed gardens, accessible for people of all abilities. Visitors will work their way through the gardens visiting the various displays, stands and how-to events and get a real and practical insight in to how they can immediately begin living more sustainably and will include: the stop food waste programme, home composting,recycling ambassadors, VOICE Ireland, conscious cup and sick of plastic campaigns, community gardens, Teagasc arable margins, Crann million trees project, grow your own, bee keepers and bird boxes, sustainable energy and transport systems, cyclist.ie,refill.ie, the public participation network, local authorities water and communities, citizen scientists and a children’s environmental awareness play area.

Come along and learn how you can make a real difference.
