Connecting Communities

The Big Pointless Plastic Photography Competition

 Connecting Communities  -  join us!

Live Here Love Here are inviting you to join us at our Connecting Communities events to hear more about our opportunities and meet community reps and volunteers in your local area.

The events will showcase our main campaigns and grants programmes and the Live Here Love Here team will be on hand to hear your project ideas and answer your questions. A great opportunity to meet groups and individuals in your area that are actively engaged in community action projects helping to keep Northern Ireland beautiful.

Events are informal and most are drop-in so you can chat with the Live Here Love Here team and others while enjoying some food and learning more about our biodiversity and food growing projects.

If you have a Live Here Love Here grant, or are thinking about applying for one - come along and discuss your project with the grants team.

Each regional gathering is free and open to everyone.  You can learn more about our grant programmes, get inspiration for the Big Spring Clean and Healthy Oceans Healthy Minds campaigns and sign up for our popular Adopt a Spot programme and get a free kit to take away! 

Attendees will receive a free gift along with discount codes to the fantastic zero waste online retailers Do Your Bit NI and The Greener Guru.

Are these occasions for me?

Events are open to those already connected to Live Here Love Here and to others who want to find out more about opportunities to get involved. 

Individuals, families, schools, community groups, church groups, sports clubs, elected members, local businesses - all welcome.

Bring your friends, family, school class, community group or visit on your own!
