Project description

Four volunteers needed on long-term ESC. Good Energies 2021 is a 1-year project that will use the enthusiasm and skills of our ESC volunteers to tackle the climate crisis, especially through our Cróga project. Cróga means Brave and our focus is reducing carbon emissions locally and nationally in Ireland, working with communities, organizing climate dialogue sessions, and schools, organizing climate action days. This will give our volunteers experience in campaigning, social media and publicity, democratic systems and actions, community interaction and empowerment. It will raise awareness of ESC locally and we will act as a sending organisation recruiting ESC volunteers, mainly with fewer opportunities. Our volunteers will be supported through mentoring, supervision and training to achieve high-quality learning outcomes (knowledge, skills and competences), to improve their personal development, their involvement as active citizens in society and their employability
