In August 2020 the Sligo PPN Environmental college launched their Environmental Series.

This initiative features a series of online presentations and Q&A sessions exploring a range of environmental issues that the environment collefe identify are a priority for Sligo, the North West and Ireland as a whole. The live series is aimed at all Sligo PPN Community Reps and members of Sligo’s Strategic Policy Committees in order to raise their awareness of these key issues so that they can advocate for their consideration at the decision making table. Once the live session is complete presentations will be loaded to this page and open for all to view.
