Environment Linkage Group Meeting
The meeting is open to all PPN groups with an interest in Environmental issues – groups with an interest will form the Linkage Group which will vote on new Environment reps for the:
Local Community Development Committee
Strategic Policy Committees
when we hold elections early next year – these elections only come up every 5 years and so are important.
If you haven’t expressed an interest in being part of the Linkage Group you won’t be able to vote for the new Environment reps.
As to the meeting itself on the 13th Dr Una Fitzpatrick from the Biodiversity Data Centre will be giving a presentation on Pollinators, Jenifer Harris will be talking about the Waterford Plastic free Initiative and Ray McGrath will update the meeting on where things stand following the Laudato Si Conference earlier in the year.
In addition we are working with the Irish Environmental Network (IEN) and our PPN colleagues in Wexford Carlow, Kilkenny and Tipperary on a regional workshop in February (probably in Thomastown Community Centre). We can discuss how best we can/want to engage with this.
John will also explain how we envisage the election process working next year.
Can you please let John or Muriel know whether a) you would like to be a part of the Linkage Group and b) whether you’ll be able to make the meeting
