An Líanadh a Dublin 12 Transition Initiative

An Líanadh came together a year ago to work with community and residents groups and schools to identify strategies for how Dublin 12 can learn to thrive and live well when oil runs out. Through workshops and films we hope to help people learn how to reduce carbon emissions and mitigate the effects of climate change. We choose the name

An Líanadh which means “rising tide” in Irish as so far flooding has been the most visible sign of climate change in Ireland. As a member of the Environmental Focus Group of Dublin City Council Community Forum we were delighted to help this year launch a booklet on community gardening. We held back-gardening workshops, seed-swops, showed films, held seminars on planning and butterfly information and are currently working with the Blarney Park Community garden project.

This Autumn we hope to run knitting and re-vamping old clothes workshops and look at the issue of bio-diversity in Dublin South Central.
