Update events and activities


Colaborative Ways Forward is currently working on projects in conjunction with a number of organisations in the areas of Food, Housing and Energy.

If you are interested in Community Food projects, a variety of projects are detailed in the website http://thirdspacegalway.ie/.

If you are interested in Energy Co Operatives, a group called Galway Energy Co Operative has been established. The group is signed up to SEAI’s Sustainable Energy Communities initiative. The group is now in the process of formally forming as a Co Operative. This aims of the group are dependent on the Co Op membership, but initial focus is on a quick win project.

If you are interested in a Housing Co Operative, a group is working on the this in Galway as part of a national network. Details to follow shortly.
