Good Energies EVS volunteers attend Léargas on-arrival training

Last weekend the Good Energies Alliance Ireland volunteers Irina, Olga and Santi joined participants in other EVS Irish projects for their on-arrival training in Swords. The three volunteers spent four days sharing their experiences and learning more about the objectives and philosophy of the European Voluntary Service. For Irina “this was a great opportunity to met others volunteers, learn about their projects and make friends. The good part is that we now know where we are going to stay if we go to Dublin and Cork! 🙂 ”

Good Energies Alliance Ireland supported and attended the screenings of Unearthed documentary in Bellanaleck (Fermanagh) and Sligo. The GEAI EVS volunteers Irina, Olga and Santi set up the projector for the Fermanagh event.

Unearthed is a thought provoking and extremely well made documentary about fracking by Jolynn Minnaar, covering both the vulnerable and arid Karoo in South Africa, and the forgotten victims of fracking pollution in the US.

Both screenings were followed by a Q&A afterward with the filmmaker.

Good Energies Alliance Ireland EVS volunteers Irina, Olga and Santi joined a gathering of Young Friends of the Earth members in Borris and Kilkenny on last weekend of September. Young FOE are building a network of young people concerned about the environment and climate change and eager to look for new ways of tackling problems.

During this meeting GEAI director Aedín McLoughlin also gave a presentation on the current situation of fracking in Ireland.

Good Energies Alliance Ireland is a Youth in Action hosting organisation, with three  volunteers from Spain, Romania and Ukraine hosted this year through the European Voluntary Service (EVS).   This scheme is funded by the EU Erasmus+ programme.
