Climate Action


The Carbon Footprint Study report for Town of Portlaoise is designed to provide Laois County Council with a detailed
assessment of its existing Carbon footprint and the potential to reduce its impact through identifying suitable reduction
opportunities.

 

 

 

Abbeyleix Climate Action Walk
Between September 2020 and March 2021 Dr Niamh Shaw was Science Communicator in Residence in Abbeyleix, Co Laois. Niamh worked with Abbeyleix Tidy Towns to find creative ways to engage the community
with all aspects of climate change. This Climate Action walk was created to celebrate the end of this residency.
 
The Climate Action Project was supported by Creative Ireland Laois as part of the Creative Ireland Programme (2017-2022) in partnership with Laois County Council, Abbeyleix Tidy Towns and Midlands
Science.
 
The walk was created thanks to the support of Healthy Ireland, an initiative of the Government of Ireland with funding from the Healthy Ireland Fund and the Sláintecare Fund delivered by Pobal,
administered by Laois County Council.
