Now in its third year, Ballina Climate Action Weekend brings some unusual angles to climate action.


Taking place this weekend (24 & 25 November), some of the highlights of the festival will capture the imaginations of locals, challenging attendees to think differently about climate change – and offer a great night out as well!


Ballina Climate Action Weekend is a Ballina Green Town event, supported by Ballina 2023, CARO Atlantic Seaboard North and AIB.


Chef Ronan Fox will guide diners through a zero waste dining experience on Friday 24th November, showcasing foods that are seasonal, sustainable and with a low carbon footprint.

There are lots more events taking place as part of Ballina’s Climate Action Weekend, including funding workshops, a swap shop, tree planting and circular economy showcase.
