Get Involved Themes

This year, Get Involved will focus on eight areas. To enter Get Involved, your project should fit within one of these themes, which are outlined below:

  1. Sustainable Energy
    Projects based around community co-ops for local energy; building energy efficient retrofits; or producing renewable fuels for use locally to provide heat, transport and power.
  2. Food
    Projects that are involved in growing and processing local food produce for the needs of their community through community food co-ops.
  3. Nature/Biodiversity
    Community projects that enhance, restore and protect nature and ecosystems, these can also revolve around eco-tourism.
  4. Water/Resource efficiency
    Locally-based projects that recognise the requirement for water sustainability and/or raise awareness of how critical this invaluable resource is to localities. In terms of Resource Efficiency projects that aim to develop markets for recyclables in Ireland.

An important element of these categories is the project’s  ability to create sustainable employment.
