The Green Club Programme was established to support Gaelic Games clubs in taking simple and effective sustainability action in their grounds and activities. The Programme is structured around the themes of Energy, Water, Waste, Biodiversity and Travel & Transport and is designed to promote sustainability awareness and action in GAA clubs and communities.
While we have done some work in this area in the past number of years, a committee has been established to formulate and implement a plan to attain Green Club status.
We have started planning the next steps and we need your opinions and suggestions on how to shape this plan!
-We published a survey to all members in January – the results of which will be published here shortly.
-Below you will find a high level plan for our potential steps.
