What can Galway do to tackle the challenge of climate change?

Thu, Oct 17, 2019

Greta Thunberg, and indeed the children of the world, have thrown down the gauntlet and demanded climate action. Solving this literal meltdown is on such a global scale that it must surely be beyond the responsibility of Galwegians?

Yet Insider has a fantasy in which Galway is a climate action beacon, sweeping Ireland towards a popular uprising. All that is needed to transform the country is a concrete example of how climate action makes communities better places to live. Why not start the uprising in Galway?

Of course a few slight stumbling blocks would need to be dealt with in order to make this happen, such as local government reform and central government concern for climate breakdown.
