Climate Action Subgroup

CLIMATE ACTION PLAN: DEPARTMENT OF THE TAOISEACH

 

The Climate Action Unit of the Department of Taoiseach is in the process of creating a website on the government’s Climate Action Plan. They wanted to work with a sub-group of young people on this website to ensure that the content is youth-friendly and accessible to all. Basically they wanted a group of jargon-busters to go through the fifty terms or so that the climate change experts have been using and to put an explainer of those on the website. Members of the National Executive were very enthusiastic about getting involved and relished the tasks at hand.

The young people will also be consulted with in relation to the look and feel of the new website, its design and the appropriate social media channels. to work with.

Commitment: approx. 3 meetings in total, at least two of which will take place in Dublin, either in DCYA or in the Dept of the Taoiseach. To date, one has taken place. Physical meetings have been put on hold at the moment to curb the spread of Covid 19. A virtual means of consultation is being explored.
