The Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment sponsors the 'Climate Action and Clean Air' Tidy Towns Special Award. This award aims to recognise the positive contribution your local community is making in raising awareness and taking positive actions in addressing climate change and improving air quality.
The competition was launched on 27 March by the Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment and Department of Rural and Community Development and winners will be announced in September as part of the overall Tidy Towns awards announcements. This year we have 4 prizes on offer:
- two prizes of €2,250 will be awarded to two Tidy Towns Committees, one from a large town/urban centre and one from a village/small town
- a runner-up's prize of €1,000 from either a large/small town
- a youth award of €500 for under a team of U18s which has demonstrated the greatest contribution from either a large or small town
