Following the fashion show earlier in the day, the UL Environmental Society welcomed visiting students from Dublin and Waterford to the UL Library Board Room for the first ever Forum for Environmental Societies in Ireland.
Following a keynote address by UL Green Campus Chairperson, Dr. Chris Fogarty, representatives from Trinity College Dublin, Waterford IT and our own UL society presented each others respective societies work undertaken over the last year. Following this a group discussion was had in response to some of the presentations, and also in regards to what we all as a collective of societies should be aiming to focus on at a national level.
This was a hugely stimulating event for everyone present sharing ideas, knowledge and inspiring new proposals about what could be done on each of our respective campuses in the future. Following on from the success of the day, we aim to encourage the running of this hugely beneficial national event annually.
A special thank you to the staff of the UL Library, Ciara McCaffrey, Louise O’Shea and Mary Dundon, for their help in the coordination of this event and for permissions to have a number of our installation pieces on show outside and inside the Library to welcome our visitors on the day.
