Via Zoom on Tuesday, 13th September | 7.00 pm – 8.30 pm
The Celebrating Community Achievements Webinar featured community and voluntary groups from across the country, who successfully completed a wide range of projects with support from the ESB Wind Farm Community Funds.
The webinar was an opportunity to showcase and celebrate the innovative work being completed by community groups across the country while also inspiring new groups and providing an opportunity for groups to learn from each other.
The webinar also promoted the work that SECAD Partnership carries out in administering the funds.
Each group nominated a presenter to speak on behalf of the group. Each presentation followed the same format and while images of the group and project were presented in the background, the speaker provided information about the project on the following:
- Background information on the group.
- Who are the main users of the facility, youth groups, active retired etc?
- How the project came about, where did the idea come from?
- The process involved in applying to the wind farm fund and receiving a successful application.
- What difference did the project make in people’s lives?
