category derry | environment | event notice author Wednesday April 02, 2008 23:03author by MAOR - MAOR Derry Report this post to the editors

Citizen's Forum

MAOR (an Irish word for ‘guardian’ or ‘steward’) are a group of individuals based in the North West who came together in 2006 in solidarity with the Shell to Sea campaign and in response to the issues surrounding gas and oil exploration off the Donegal coast.
The upcoming MAOR Energy Forum Fortnight attempts to be a tool to raise awareness of and generate discussion on ownership and management of Ireland’s natural resources.
MAOR encourages everyone to take part in this energising programme of films, workshops, media discussions and a Citizen’s Forum.
All participation in the MAOR Energy Forum Fortnight will be highly valued as MAOR will be compiling all the thoughts shared throughout the events for use in council and government consultation.
