Local Environmental Networks

Local Environmental Networks (LENs) are made up of individuals with interests in a wide range of environmental issues. They provide a central hub around which people from a given county can gather, discuss projects, ask for help, create change and become involved in their local Public Participation Network.

All around the country LENs are being used to bring people together, create meaningful projects for the local community and impact the wider surroundings.

Some LENs are very active, with regular meetings, a range of projects on the go and an online presence. Some consist of a Facebook group and a monthly newsletter. Others are still very young; a mailing list of interested individuals. These groups are waiting for the right people to spur them on to greater things. There is huge possibility to do great things in your community and they are fantastic fun to be involved in.

Search the list for your LEN. Depending on how active your LEN is, the links will either take you to your county’s LEN page where you can contact them directly, or will ask you to get in touch via the contact form at the bottom of this page.

**These resources are still being fully compiled. If you have further questions, or see anything that needs updating, please contact Catherine at catherine@ien.ie.**
