About Irish Environmental Network
The Irish Environmental Network is an umbrella network that works to support environmental NGOs through access to funding and services. It consists of 30 environmental NGOs that carry out their work through practical conservation work, campaigning, lobbying and raising public awareness of environmental and conservation needs.
The Local Environmental Network is being created in each county as a group for individuals with a wide range of environmental interests. The role will involve the set up and management of an online platform (ie. Facebook page or group). This platform will provide a space for all with an interest in the environment to share events that are happening in their county, share information on environmental issues from the local and national setting, and share their knowledge and expertise with others in the field.
The volunteer will be asked to maintain the Facebook page/group, to find information on environmental events in their county and to update the page/group regularly. The role will involve the admin of the page/group. This role is the beginning of this Local Environmental Network, and would be especially suited to anyone from the county with an interest in environmental matters.
