What is it?

Community Climate Coaches is an exciting opportunity for individuals interested in climate action, community-led development, and sustainability to build their skills and knowledge to encourage local climate action.

What will you learn?

Through the program, you will build your capacity to facilitate and support community-led initiatives, connect people to nature, hold space for conversations, and increase understanding and ambition for climate action. You will have the opportunity to empower and support communities in taking community-based actions to address the climate crisis and build personal and collective resilience.

The program is also designed to support participants in building their capacity as leaders and change-makers in their communities. If you are passionate about creating positive change in your community through community projects, we encourage you to apply to be a Community Climate Coach.

How do I apply?

You can apply by clicking on this link and filling out the application form or email info@cultivate.ie if you have any questions. If you are interested but have any additional needs that would allow you to participate, please get in touch and we will do our best to accommodate you.

Who should join?

We are seeking participants for the program in the 5 municipal districts of County Tipperary, particularly those already engaged in working with people in different sectors, including harder-to-reach communities which will take place from April 2023 to April 2024.

What is the commitment?

As a participant, you commit to 3 in-person and 5 online sessions. These sessions will be held on Friday afternoons with venues for the in-person events expected to be in Cloughjordan, Cabra Wetlands, and Tipperary town. Optional experts and support sessions will also be available.

Do I need previous experience?

We encourage both people with or without prior experience in climate action to participate as this program is open to anyone with passion and commitment to creating positive change in their community. This program should be viewed as part of your Continued Professional Development, allowing you to act on climate, biodiversity, and social issues in your workplace, personal, or communal life.
