The SECAD Sustainable Communities Training Programme has been designed and developed by SECAD Partnership CLG in conjunction with delivery partners VOICE (in West Cork).
Developed with community members in mind, this training programme seeks to enable communities to build Community Development Teams which will take part in training, develop Community-Led Sustainability Plans, including detailed plans for Legacy Projects for their own communities. The West Cork Participating Communities are :
- Tracton Parish
- Courceys / Ballinspittle
The programme will be delivered through blended learning which involves a series of weekly workshops that will cover a wide range of important sustainability topics. The community groups involved will be supported throughout as they build their sustainability plans, before finally presenting their work as part of a showcase in autumn 2022.
