Public Participation Network (PPNs)


Background

Everyone has a role to play in supporting Ireland progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Ireland’s National Implementation Plan (https://www.dccae.gov.ie/documents/DCCAE-National-Implement-Plan.pdf) for the SDGs identifies the crucial role that Local Authorities have to play in translating the SDGs into practical action at a local level. Throughout the lifetime of Saolta, Development Perspectives will be working to support Public Participation Networks (PPNs) across Ireland in integrating the SDGs into County Development Plans. Development Perspectives will also be supporting PPNs in mapping their goals to strategic SDG actions.

“A PPN is a network that allows local authorities to connect with community groups across the country” (Gov.ie, 2019).

What we offer

  • Free SDG training for staff and members of individual PPNs across Ireland.
  • Distribution of free resources to PPN members to support community groups in the delivery of SDG training.
  • Support to PPN staff in the aligning of strategies and workplans to the SDGs.
