Free training sessions in Carndonagh 08.03.16

DONEGAL County Council is inviting people to take part in a free two-day training project designed to raise awareness about how local actions can impact the wider world.
The 'Act Local, Think Global' scheme will kick off this week in Carndonagh but booking is essential.
The council is hosting the project through the EU funded LADDER project and is the only local authority in Ireland participating in the project.
Co-ordinator JoAnne Kilmartin said: "There is a growing interest in locally produced foods and this is great not only in terms of healthy eating but also from a sustainable development perspective. Food that is grown locally can reach our plates quickly reducing air miles and other transport costs and this will ultimately have a positive impact on climate change.”
“We are working with Patsy Toland from Gorta Self Help Africa who is well known for his work in schools around the county and Patsy will facilitate this training. Participants will also have an opportunity to develop projects and apply for grant aid to assist them in developing these ideas further”.
Training will take place in Carndonagh on March 10 and April 8 and in Donegal Town on March 15 and April 7. To book your place contact jkilmart@donegalcoco.ie or visit www.donegalcoco.ie .
