Event Details

Laois has been busy tackling climate change at a local level for a number of years through a range of community activities and it’s about time we highlight this work, hear about what  has been happening and learn how we can get involved. Join Dr. Niamh Shaw, Laois’s science communica tor in residence for climate action live from Abbeyleix as she gather together a panel of local climate heroes: scientists, ecologists, beekeepers, gardeners, and community residents.  Running over three nights, we will hear the s tories from nine local residents as they share the various ways we can better appreciate our beautiful county Laois, and planet Earth.

Dr. Niamh Shaw is  Climate Action science communica tor in residence in Abbeyleix supported by Creative Ireland Laois as part of the Creative Ireland Programme [2017-2022] in partnership with Laois County Council and Midlands Science. These panels are produced for Science Week 2020, supported by Science Foundation Ireland. For more details on the project email
