Peat Hub Ireland Scenarios Workshop 

Workshop PHIOn Thursday 30 May, the Peat Hub Ireland team held a workshop to communicate the outcomes of the Peat Hub Ireland project, using scenarios to encourage creative thinking and sustainable action amongst a range of stakeholders for Irish peatlands. The team worked with Dr (opens in a new window)Matt Finch, a strategy & foresight practitioner who works with communities and institutions around the world on scenario planning, strategy and policy. Workshop participants explored ‘Possible Peatland Futures’ scenarios for 2050 and were taken on a guided walk around Cloncrow Bog Natural Heritage Area with Eugene Dunbar from (opens in a new window)ETHOS.  Representatives from the Care Peat project and NPWS (partners on the Cloncrow project) also contributed to discussions on restoration at the site, along with other attendees.
