Galway Ecovillage Public Meeting - Galway City Museum

Following on from a successful public meeting in the Westside, the development of the first ecological community in the west of Ireland will be discussed at a public meeting hosted by the Galway Sustainable Community Project in the Galway City Museum this Tuesday 22nd June from 7-9pm. These public meetings are designed to encourage interactive discussion and invite new people to get involved in the project.

The Galway Sustainable Community Project is a group of people based in Galway City whose vision is to create a small, purpose-built settlement in the west of Ireland where residents will produce some of their own food and energy and form a strong, close-knit community.

The village will be designed by its future residents and will be built and run in a way that is environmentally sustainable. It will have private houses belonging to or rented to each family unit; shared facilities and community buildings where residents can eat, work and socialise together; and land devoted to food growing, making it partly self-sufficient. Education and awareness-raising about ecological and community living will be a priority.

The group has produced a video about the project, which is on the web at www.sustainablecommunity.ie, and lately undertook a factfinding trip to the UK and assisted in work on a strawbale house.

"Conventional modern day living leaves too many people isolated and yearning for a stronger sense of community," said Kerry E'lyn Larkin of the GSCG. "At the same time, it's becoming clear that the Western world needs to reform our environmentally-devastating lifestyle - and this is easier to do in a co-operative fashion than individually. A sustainably built and run intentional community addresses both of these major issues, and will provide a high quality of life for its residents".

Anyone interested in learning more or contributing to the discussion should come along on Tuesday, or to one of the future public meetings.
