Inaugural Climate Fest Mayo a massive success.
Posted in Connect on October 15, 2019.
Almost 400 people attended Climate Fest Mayo which took place on Saturday 28th September in GMIT in Castlebar. There were some great motivational and inspiring speakers aswell as fun and engaging performances which kept everyone entertained throughout the day. All eight workshops were well attended and gave simple tips and changes people could make in their everyday lives. The Direct Provision fashion show was very emotional and illustrated the human side of climate change. There were three main actions that everyone can undertake which were highlighted by Theo and Maude Cullen Mouze and repeated by speakers throughout the day – Care for our planet by informing ourselves about what we can do, use our democratic rights and talk to people about climate change.
The Climate Fest Committee (Sisters of Mercy Western Province, Mayo County Council, GMIT Green Campus and Castlebar Parish) would like to thank all who attended, all participants and all sponsors for making the inaugural Climate Fest such a success.
Pictures and presentations from the day are available on the Climate Fest Facebook page. For more information on upcoming Climate Action events in Mayo see our social media pages.
