The “Eastern & Midlands Enabling Roadmap for the Green Economy” (EMERGE) Launch Webinar
Invitation to Launch of “Eastern & Midlands Enabling Roadmap for the Green Economy” (EMERGE), 14 December
We are delighted to invite you to attend a special webinar to mark the launch of the “Eastern and Midlands Enabling Roadmap for the Green Economy” (EMERGE) project on Wednesday, 14 December (10am - 11.30am).
EMERGE is a training and mentoring programme designed to empower communities to meet the challenges posed by Ireland’s transition to a climate-proofed economy and resilient society.
The programme will engage with impacted communities in the wider Midlands, including East Galway, Kildare, Laois, Longford, North Tipperary, Offaly, Roscommon and Westmeath.
Drawing on the region's unique heritage and resources, EMERGE will help local communities take ownership of the new opportunities created by climate action, access funding, and own the economic, social and environmental future of the region.
EMERGE is rooted in the idea of a "Just Transition", which seeks to ensure that the benefits of the move to a climate–proofed economy are widely shared, while those most affected by the challenges are supported. The programme will empower communities to take charge of the Just Transition and, above all, ensure that no one is left behind.
The programme is being delivered by Eastern and Midlands CARO, Urban Foresight and The Wheel, and the Government of Ireland is funding the programme through the Just Transition Fund and the Carbon Tax Fund.
Who is this webinar for?
This webinar is free and available to anyone with an interest in supporting impacted communities or any individual or group that would like to learn more about the "Just Transition" approach.
