  4. I’ve just watched series 15 ‘Fighting Flooding’.
    What a superbly thought out and assembled production. With the knowledge of what we said in the various interviews, we would all no doubt change some things. However, given the time constraint, I thought it covered so many of our key messages effectively. I was particularly impressed with the excellent summing up at the end, which is so important in reinforcing and hammering home the key issues.

    1. Hi Mike,

      Glad you enjoyed the episode. Apologies for the delay in replying, we get a lot of spam to the site and the filters have been a bit too enthusiastic lately so just after seeing your message.
      Thanks for taking part in the episode and we hope it lived up to your expectations. Its only a 25min show so we often find theres too much information to get in but hopefully the message was clear.
      Since then there has been talk of taking a soft engineering approach (similar to Pickering ) in the midlands here which is all bog (not unlike your moors) but is close to major rivers like the Shannon. There are a number of flooding blackspots there so the conversation has started to include more soft engineering options so fingers crossed.
      Thanks again for your help and contribution and your kind message.
      We can be contacted directly at info@earthhorizon.ie or @ecoeye

  5. I am a grandmother and very anxious to use what resources I have in terms of action and voluntary community effort to work in my local community to promote action to put in place initiatives to address climate change. I am also living on a relatively low income and am aware that whatever action we promote must be available to low income families as well as those who are better off. For example,, how can pensioners or families, on a very low income, keep warm in winter in a environmentally sustainable way with expensive investment in more sustanable housing? I would really like some support and advice on how to support the process of change at local community level. I want my grandchildren and all out future citizens to live in a better world and to live in harmony with nature and their environment. Please give me some advice on how I can work towards this objectivel. I really believe that action must begin at local community level.

    1. Hi Yvonne,

      Apologies for the delay in replying, Ive just explained to a number of other commenters/ viewers that our spam filters have been blocking all messages and we often dont know there are questions waiting to be answered.
      We hope to rectify this soon.
      In regards to your question, we usually direct people to NGO’s like ‘Friends of the Earth’ https://www.foe.ie/ they are a great organisation for information and also help coordinate and implement different schemes and initiatives. They would certainly be a good starting point for up to date information and advice.
      The ‘SEAi’ (Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland) a government body was formed to assist with some of the issues you raised. They offer grants and advice for different areas related to heating/insulation/ sustainable solutions.
      ‘Get Involved’ is a newer organisation that is based around the type of community based initiatives you spoke of. Its small projects countrywide that could be climate change related, conservation related, protection of natural resources (water/ soil etc) etc etc. Its a project that our presenters Anja and Duncan are actively involved in and theres a competition annually and there are some really interesting projects going on, it has been very successful. Projects can be large or small and are always grass roots, community based ones. http://get-involved.ie/ -its definitely worth looking into this as there may be a project in your area or you could potentially get help to get one off the ground.
      The points you brought up are so important and ones we cover regularly on our series. Groups like the ‘Tipperary Energy agency’ do a lot of work in this area (and will hopefully be going nationwide soon)as do ‘Energy Action’ in Dublin, both work with low-income homes to address issues surrounding energy, heating, insulation and always with sustainability and the environment in mind. Unfortunately neither is nationwide yet but there are plans to expand nationwide.
      We agree that action needs to start at community level and believe that ‘Friends of The Earth’ and ‘Get-Involved’ would be good places to start. They are well connected nationwide and should be able to help you get the information you need to get started.
      Hope this was of help to you and best of luck with your endeavours.
      We can be reached at info@earthhorizon.ie or @ecoeye
      Thanks
