Belturbet Zero Waste – results are in!

Belturbet EF Survey Results, July 2019

The average Ecological Footprint (EF) of Belturbet residents calculates at 3.03 global Hectares (gHa). This means if everyone in the world lived as the average Belturbet citizen, we would need 1.7 planets.

The 2019 Belturbet EF Result compares well with the national average, this being over 3 planets.

This is the Baseline we will use to chart our progress to our target of 50% waste reduction over the next 5 years.

Beginning in September, the next step on our Belturbet Zero Waste journey will be a series of workshops on achievable low-carbon changes.

Many thanks to all involved in bringing our Zero Waste project to this stage. For full details of the project check out our web page and stay in touch through our Facebook Page.

Major new youth service announced for Belturbet

Major new youth service announced for Belturbet

A major new youth service has just been announced for Belturbet in County Cavan.

It’s an extension of the Bounce Back Youth Service which currently operates in some towns throughout the county, and is managed by Youth Work Ireland and the ISPCC. Belturbet has been identified as having a lack of dedicated youth services and support workers, and a dedicated youth drop-in cafe or youth space.

Under the new project, three youth workers will be based in Belturbet to provide services which support young people experiencing difficulties with drug and alcohol abuse, anti-social behaviour and mental health.

The project will also involve the development of a Youth Resilience Group Work Programme to help young people cope with the challenges of life today.

Maureen McIntyre, who is the Youth Officer with Cavan Monaghan ETB who are administering the project, says a number of concerns were raised about the lack of youth services in Belturbet in the past.
