Dingle Hub recently submitted detailed comments on Kerry County Council’s Climate Action Plan. We were one of 64 submissions, and made the following points:
- Climate change and biodiversity loss are existential challenges that require strong, visible and ambitious leadership from Kerry County Council as well as urgent, sustained action from the whole of society on an unprecedented scale.
- The Council must partner with, work with, and fully resource local communities so they can do what is required.
- An ambitious vision is needed to make County Kerry “nature positive” (or “carbon negative”) and, in the process, develop new economic and business opportunities in the county.
- The climate action plan should draw upon the Irish language, poetry and culture to frame the narrative and connect with local communities.
