Would you like the chance participate in the process of planning for your local community? Join SECAD for the free My Town, My Plan training programme, funded through the LEADER programme and aimed at community group members and individuals who are interested in planning for their own town and surrounding areas.  It will run from Autumn 2019 in your town and will allow neighboring community members to discuss the future of their own area.  Groups can choose four of the topics listed below

Theme A: Enterprise and Asset Management:

Future opportunities for retail and developing a retail strategy

Communities and Renewable Energy Production

Theme C: Environment:

The first meeting in May 2019 will be critical as it will allow SECAD & trainers from Cork Institute of Technology’s (CIT’s) Hincks Centre for Entrepreneurship Excellence to shape your specific training programme to be delivered from September 2019.

We need as many people from different backgrounds, interests, ages and cultures to participate.  Please take this opportunity to become part of this important process aimed at sustaining your community’s vibrancy and resilience
