Wild Atlantic Way creates template for sustainable coastal tourism in Europe

Published

on

The spectacular Poll na bPheist on Inis Mór – one of the many unique attractions on the Wild Atlantic Way.

The success of the Wild Atlantic Way will be used as a template for other European regions to look at their potential to capitalise on sustainable coastal tourism.

The west’s success story has been used as a research model to establish best practice for the development of marine and coastal tourism trails in the EU – without having a detrimental effect on local communities or the environment.

The research – which was driven by a team at NUIG with input from the Northern & Western Regional Assembly – forms part of the Moses Project which aims to further the EU’s Blue Growth strategy in five focus maritime areas with the potential to accelerate learning across Europe.

The five maritime areas are aquaculture, marine and coastal tourism, offshore renewable energy, ports and fisheries.

Blue Growth is defined as growth that does not interfere with the marine environment’s long-term ability to continue to deliver ecosystem services.

The Moses Project, which is concluding this year, has eight partners in five countries, comprising a mixture of research centres/universities, regional government and a public body representing marine-based activities.

The project is funded through the innovative EU INTERREG Programme called Atlantic Area.

The research on the 2,500 km Wild Atlantic Way was carried out between 2018 and 2020 by a project team in the Socio-Economic Marine Research Unit (SEMRU) based at NUIG, following a brief review of the marine and coastal tourism management regime in Ireland.

The Northern & Western Regional Assembly (NWRA) was also a partner in the two-year project.

Roadshow’s nationwide brainstorm

Published

The Creating Our Future Roadshow on its stopover in Galway city.

Galwegians were offered the chance to play a part in creating a better future for Ireland – by participating in a nationwide brainstorming session last week.

The Creating Our Future Roadshow is midway through its mission to visit every county in Ireland in a month – having started out on September 24 in Wicklow and running until October 26.

It’s a government-led national brainstorm that will involve the people of Ireland in a conversation on the role research can and should play in addressing opportunities, challenges and hopes for the future.

Creating Our Future, according to Minister Simon Harris, will ensure that the direction of research in Ireland is informed by the people it serves.

The organisers are asking people to submit their ideas about what researchers in Ireland should explore to create a better future through the dedicated online portal www.creatingourfuture.ie, which is open until November 30.

The Roadshow is also pulling up in towns across the country to encourage the public to engage in a conversation with researchers over a cup of coffee – and to submit an idea about an opportunity or challenge in their lives, community, Ireland or the world; or something they are curious or passionate about and would like researchers to explore.

Deputies outline blueprint for sustained regional recovery

Published

on

Pictured: Ministers Michael McGrath and Paschal Donohoe meet with members of the Regional Group of Independent TDs - including local Deputies Sean Canney, Noel Grealish and Denis Naughten.

A group of independent TDs has called on the Government to prioritise spending on rural Ireland – to regenerate regional towns and villages, increase supports to farmers and community initiatives, and the support local business.

The Regional Group of Independent TDs used their Pre-Budget Submission to highlight the ‘critical need to invest in our people to support the transition back to normality’.

The group – which includes local Deputies Sean Canney, Noel Grealish and Denis Naughten – met with budget ministers, Michael McGrath and Paschal Donohoe where members outlined five key points they want to see addressed in next week’s budget.

They are seeking support for the regeneration of towns and villages, housing, green villages, remote working and transport links; investment to help home-grown SMEs through recovery and renewal – and a complete review of tax credits and social welfare systems to ensure working is always financially better.

They also want to see investment in health and community initiatives, and in services within communities, on top of repurposing existing infrastructure – and increased supports for farmers, to aid intergenerational transfers and the agri-food sector.
