The Department of Rural and Community Development is hosting a series of online stakeholder engagement events, to discuss a number of important topics featured in ‘Our Rural Future – Rural Development Policy 2021-2025’.

The events will provide an opportunity to discuss the challenges and opportunities that impact on rural communities and economies. Attendees will learn more about ongoing work relating to key objectives contained in the policy, and hear from a panel of key stakeholders.

The theme of the second event is: Transitioning to a Climate Neutral Society

Climate change, and our response to it, is the most significant issue of our generation and for future generations.Climate change is already having impacts on Ireland’s environment, society, economy and natural resources. Addressing climate change and responding to its impacts is everyone’s responsibility – the State, businesses, communities and individuals. Action needs to be taken urgently to respond to the climate crisis and create a future which is sustainable from an economic, societal and environmental perspective.

Our Rural Future recognises the potential for climate transition measures to have particular impacts for rural communities. We aim to support a Just Transition for rural communities to a sustainable, resilient, and climate neutral economy and society. The policy aims to work with rural communities and businesses, through engagement and investment, to help them overcome challenges related to climate change and to maximise opportunities for them.

Registration is required and each event is limited to 120 participants.

Please note this event will be recorded and made publicly available following the event.
