In January 2020, the County & City Management Association (CCMA), on behalf of local authorities, and the GAA have pledged to work together to lead their communities in promoting sustainability and climate action.
The partnership capitalises on the leadership roles both organisations have within their communities, and the potential they have to engage with citizens of all ages to promote sustainable local development, environmental awareness and climate action.
The collaboration builds on the GAA’s status as a Sustainable Development Goal Champion and aligns with local government commitments under the National Climate Action Plan and Local Authorities’ Climate Action Charters.
A steering group, composed of representatives from the local authority sector, the GAA, LGFA and Camogie Association are developing various initiatives, such as a Green Club toolkit that will be focused on the key action areas of Energy & Water Efficiency, Biodiversity, Waste Management & Plastic Use and Transport.
