October 29, 2023
Are you an organisation operating in the wider Midlands? Interested in funding to address the economic, social and environmental impact of the shift away from carbon-intense activities in your community?
The EU Just Transition Fund aims to support regions that are experiencing negative impacts from the transition away from fossil fuel-intensive industries.
In Ireland, the EU Just Transition Fund provides funding to the areas in the wider Midlands where communities have been negatively affected by the closure of peat production and peat-fired energy generation facilities.
Terence Connolly, the Irish National Contact Point for the EU JustTransition Fund, joined us for a discussion on how community and voluntary organisations can benefit from this funding programme.
Access Europe is a support and capacity-building programme for Irish civil society organisations to better access EU funds and engage in EU policy. It is funded by the Department of Foreign Affairs and delivered by The Wheel.
