And we're off! Watch the Regional Launch here.
We were over the moon to have Heather Humphreys, TD, Minister of Social Protection, Community and Rural Development and the Islands, launch our Innovating Communities Programme (ICP) yesterday, Wednesday 17th February.
The Minister commended the aims of the project saying "This project is very timely in supporting communities to build from the bottom up and respond to COVID-19 at a local level."
"When we are talking about rural development, innovation is pivotal when it comes to assisting rural communities to be more active stakeholders in making our communities more sustainable."
If you missed the official Launch itself, don't worry - you can watch the whole event below. Further local launches will take place in each county over the coming three weeks. Join us at your Local Launch to tell us the Challenges you'd like to work through with your community.
