Community Resilience Discussion Evening

Meitheal Forbartha na Gaeltachta organised a discussion evening with a view to building a resilient community in the face of current economic collapse and fuel depletion. This took place on Saturday evening at 8.00 pm 20th November 2010 at Halla Pobail Chamuis, Camus Community Centre, Camus, Co Galway.

The aim of the evening was to discuss sustainable ways of living in our community which respects equality for everyone without compromising the future of generations to come.

There was a committed panel of speakers who were all interested in helping build community resilience to changing global, national and local circumstances, particularly with respect to social cohesion, energy and food security, and the enhancement of local economies.

This discussion evening was supported by the Local Development Programme, administered by Meitheal Forbartha na Gaeltachta.
