Climate Change Adaptation
The sole purpose of LIFE.ForestResilient2Wildfire is to share practices between Portugal and Italy, very experienced in wildfires and Sweden and Ireland that unpredictable found themselves dealing with large wildfires.
The main objective of the project is to have forest more resilient to wildfires by attacking 3 fronts (sharing forest management approaches; develop a tool to help decision-making for the forestry sector; training of civil protection workers into fires hazard risk assessment under climate change).
Putting our Green Foot Forward Together
Gardening maintenance and horticulture in this project responds to the ever-increasing demand and variety of employment opportunities within this domain. The communities encourage volunteering in being able to incorporate social inclusion for persons who cannot commit their professional time to horticulture, and as a way of providing all persons access to the therapeutic benefits of gardening while promoting environment sustainability.
We therefore opted for a project incorporating gardening and widening the basic skills needed for a career within, as we believe that horticulture has the potential for a successful, sustainable and flourishing career.
Climate Governance and Information
The general objective of LIFE - IRISH ALL TOGETHER ACTION is to collectively work towards a low emission and a more climate resilient society. This project aims to improve policy engagement from citizens on the matters of climate action, diminishing the gap between policymakers and citizens.
By developing an electronic platform between interested parties will go towards supporting more effective compliance and implementation of EU climate legislation through the dissemination of best practices. It aims at strengthening technical capacities for adaptation to climate change by organizing training courses and dissemination activities on climate change adaptation outcomes.
Growing skills on farms for budding learners with disabilities
Intellectual learning difficulties effects over 5 million people in the E.U. The context of this Partnership is that farms, including city farms, provide an accessible environment for SEND learners to acquire VET skills for employment. They can offer opportunities that colleges cannot within a practical, sensory-rich environment. To provide a more inclusive labour market, farms need to provide quality, well respected VET schemes of work.
The objective of the Partnership is to:
- Share knowledge of outreach to promote access for disabled learners onto courses in farms as permeable pathways into the labour market,
- Develop inclusive and accessible schemes of work for learners with disabilities,
- Provide stimulating, inspirational collaboration to motivate and aid VET teachers’ and staffs’ continuous professional development.
and Resource Efficiency
The project LIFE FromOceanWithLove, aims at improving both proactive and reactive plastic waste management, following in line with the Circular Economy Action Plan. With the demonstration of a new shoe production model with the ultimate objective of reducing resource consumption and waste generation in the textile and footwear sectors.
The optimization of resource-selection, by using Seatex (Plastic from the Ocean) will develop transferable methods to spread innovations across the sector, to disseminate and promote a more environment friendly footwear industry. Will be created as well a consumer close platform making easier for the consumer to make sustainable and informed choices.
Getting down to green business
Creating Entrepreneurs in Horticulture for young people with fewer opportunities
Give back to our local community, by dovetailing into some of the key areas of focus in our city. Bristol is known for its Independent business and has had a surge in start-up initiatives and support.
Bristol is a green city and European Green Capital for 2015. Bristol’s biggest challenge is child poverty, which continues to be relatively higher than other cities in the UK. Which will have as impact the increased motivation to be involved in green activities both in the workplace, at home and within local community initiatives. Motivated to continue to improve their green credentials/reduce their carbon footprint, combat climate change.
