A big thank you to Robert Moss, your Climate Action, Environment, and Energy SPC representative, for being the guest speaker at last night’s *Last Thursday of the Month Members’ Meet-Up: keeping it environmental*.  Thanks also to all the attendees for contributing to the evening, showing their interest in the topic of Rainwater Harvesting, sharing their opinions and asking pertinent questions.

Training opportunity

Our friends from DCU in the Community, with whom we organized the PPN Summer School, are having their own annual summer school in July. All their sessions are free and held online on Zoom.  Check their Facebook to read the topics and dates, and to register.


 Anastasiia Lunko is a Ukrainian immigrant living in Dublin for over 3 years. Anastasiia is an artist and has organized a small exhibition related to the ongoing war in Ukraine, that will have its opening on July 13th at 8 PM in Brick Alley Cafe. Adekunle Gomez, your Arts rep, will open the exhibition on behalf of the PPN, and we would love if you could attend it. Anastasiia especially wants to invite Ukrainians to come and find support among other Ukrainians.

Warm welcome to new members

We want to welcome all the new members who registered into the Network in the last few days. We are happy you found us and we will be happy to inform you about the opportunities within the PPN, and to find ways to work together. 
Our aim is not to increase our numbers, but to enhance participation, so we encourage you to keep in touch.
