Don’t forget too though if you want to advertise an event on our event page you can do that yourself by just clicking on this link and filling in all the details. You can upload a photo there too.

PPN member Theresa O’Donohoe is going to Boot Camp…
Top congratulations to Theresa O’Donohoe, Secretariat Member and PPN Representative for the Environmental College on the Economic Development and Enterprise SPC (phew). She and her idea for a People’s Energy Charter have been selected to go on to the next stage of the hotly contested Social Entrepreneurs Ireland’s search for Ireland’s most promising social innovators. People who reach the final stage in this process can obtain up to 100,000 euros in funding for their social change projects. Theresa has been selected as one of only 50 people who will go to ‘boot camp’ where she will have a chance to refine and strengthen the project which she was selected for.
Clare PPN wishes her the best of luck with the boot camp and the next stages.
