Aidan Gillan runs an organic farm in Sligo and is passionate about the sustainability of planet earth.
While participating in Landmark’s Self-Expression and Leadership in Dublin he decided to honour his commitment by initiating a project called ‘Save Our Planet Awards 2013’. The intention of the project is to acknowledge people in the north west of Ireland embracing parts of the Connaught and Ulster provinces.
The project is about acknowledging the people/organisations in our communities who are contributing to the sustainability of our planet in many different ways. You can nominate the people who through their actions show real commitment to the earth as we face major threats from climate change and environmental damage.
Nominees are local heroes making a difference in our world and will be invited along to an Oscar-type awards ceremony taking place in the Clarion Hotel Sligo on August the 11th at 3pm.
The ABC Run For Literacy Awareness was Christine Daly’s project that she created when she took part in Landmark Education’s Self-Expression and Leadership Program in Ireland. The run was a 5k event that took place at noon on August 21st at the Wicklow Sailing Club. Participants contributed €15 to enter (€12 for children under 18 and seniors). Prize went to participants for winning their race category, as well as to those who wore the best hats! The race started at the sailing club overlooking the harbour, went all through the town, giving great views of Wicklow Bay.
All proceeds from the event went to a pilot program in Wicklow to raise awareness of illiteracy, through the administration of ABC 123 For Literacy. It is estimated that 25% of Ireland’s adult population is illiterate. ABC 123 For Literacy seeks to raise awareness of the issue, and to encourage literate adults to become volunteers that help others learn to read. ABC’s campaign is asking people to donate just one hour a week of their time. To learn more, visit their website at http://abc123forliteracy.weebly.com/.
