About act waterford

encourage action on climate change in Waterford.

ACT Waterford is an interdisciplinary project which brings together Waterford City and County Council (WCCC) and South East Technological University (SETU) in an exciting project funded by Creative Ireland Climate Action fund.

5 communities | 5 creatives

In addition to working with four local communities, we also wanted to consider an online community investigating shopping and recycling habits.

Greening the city
This “Greening the City” strand will be led by a creative with a strong background in community gardens, citizen engagement and so is ideally placed to work with this community.
Working with Dunmore Road Communities, the creative will explore alternatives to car journeys and take the bus for a change.
All the issues such as biodiversity, habitat loss, and sustainable agriculture, can be explored through the lens of water.
Responding to the set theme, The Walls Project (TWP) will work collaboratively with the Ballybeg community to examine domestic energy use and efficiency.
