Get involved in your community now

Following on from the successful smart village training in Culdaff, Carn, Moville and Buncrana earlier this year, IDP is delighted to be in a position to offer FREE smart village training in Malin Head and Newtowncunningham in October in November. These will be in person training sessions taking place in central locations within the community.

Aine McLaughlin, Community Development Officer at Inishowen Development Partnership, who is organising the Smart Village Training said it is a fantastic way to highlight what is happening in your area.

“As well as highlighting what is already happening, it is great to be able to collectively showcase the many community initiatives that we know are out there around Inishowen.  We have received great feedback from the previous participants, with lots of excellent discussions, collaboration, and goal setting,” added Aine.

Smart Villages is a national programme that has been commissioned by sixteen local development companies from around the country and is being delivered under LEADER in 2022.  Smart Villages are communities in rural areas that use innovative solutions to improve their resilience, building on local strengths and opportunities.
