Join the CLIMATE CONVERSATION and have a say in your future.
Published: 26th April 2021
The 2021 Climate Action Plan will be our roadmap towards a climate neutral future – and your input is requested.
The Climate Action Plan is Ireland’s roadmap to becoming a climate neutral economy and resilient society by 2050. This means that the amount of greenhouse gases released into the atmosphere is dramatically reduced and is balanced by the amount removed by our land, forestry, or technology. Becoming a climate resilient society will help us to cope with the impacts of a changing climate.
Ireland is committed to achieving this future through a just transition, meaning all voices will be heard in a fair and equal manner, and that new opportunities will mean no one is left behind.
The Govt is now developing the 2021 Climate Action Plan and want your views on how they can transform Ireland and support people to take their own climate actions. You are invited to be part of this Climate Conversation and to share your views on the government's climate action and how it can support you to take climate action in your own life. Your views will also be part of the wider National Dialogue on Climate Action and will help to engage and communicate with more people on Ireland's climate action in the future.
You don’t need to be a climate expert for your opinion to be valued, the government want to hear from as many people as possible.
