“We are the first generation to understand how serious the climate crisis is and the last generation to be able to do something about it.” – Mary Robinson
INVITATION: Join us and the Mary Robinson Centre this Tuesday evening 30th March at 7pm to find out how your business can join the pledge to become more sustainable in Ballina and North Mayo.
Ballina – Irelands’s Greenest Town is an initiative to make Ballina Ireland’s greenest town by 2025. It brings together community groups and societies working in Ballina and North Mayo on ambitious, transformative projects to bring about a brighter, more sustainable future.
Sustainable tourism development is particularly important, and increasingly, trends show that our visitors are seeking evidence we are working sustainably as a destination.
Ahead of Earth Day on April 22nd, The Mary Robinson Centre is inviting everyone with a passion for our home and our environment – community groups, schools and businesses – to pledge to do just THREE things for our environment, join us on our sustainability quest and be a signatory on the new Green Town charter.
On our regular Tuesday Tourism Chat this 30th March at 7pm, Susan Heffernan, Project Manager at The Mary Robinson Centre will outline what the Charter means for Ballina and North Mayo as a tourism destination, how we can all get involved, and how we can benefit from it.
This is a small step on an important journey for Ballina and North Mayo. At the same time, Ballina is applying to be Mayo’s pilot Decarbonising Zone, a 10 year pilot project to transform our town. With national and international academic and industry expertise, Ballina’s community is working on far-reaching, visionary and ambitious projects, putting Ballina on the map as a solution-focused town, committed to a sustainable future that protects our environment for future generations.
