Climate Action Signage

Date: 14 Nov 2022

Mayo County Council launch countywide signage initiative.

To coincide with COP 27, which is currently taking place in Egypt, Mayo County Council, in conjunction with the CARO-Atlantic Seaboard North are rolling out Climate Action Signage around the county. The Climate Action Signage initiative aims to create awareness of the climate action and biodiversity measures being delivered across the county.

Mayo County Council has been working with local communities for many years to address climate-related issues, driving practical policy and behavioural change locally, supporting community-led climate action and supporting enterprise in moving to a resilient and low carbon society. 

The signage initiative, which was piloted in Ballina last year, aims to highlight some of the actions being delivered by both the council and communities to help reduce emissions, build resilience to the impacts of climate change and to protect and enhance our biodiversity. The signage will raise awareness of some less obvious actions and help build knowledge and awareness around the role of nature-based solutions in tackling climate change.

The initiative includes a strong climate action branding that is hoped will become recognisable to the public as a point of information on climate action  Central to the strategy is the use of QR Codes that, when scanned, will bring you to more detailed information on the climate action taking place at that site.

The new signage was launched by the Cathaoirleach of Mayo County Council, Cllr. Seamus Weir, who said, “Mayo County Council is working together with communities and businesses in Mayo in transitioning to a carbon neutral and resilient society. After the success of the pilot signage in Ballina last year, these new signs help highlight the good work being done across the whole county and help build awareness on what can be done at a local level to move towards a more sustainable future.”
