*Calling all People of Tydavnet, Scotstown, Knockatallon, Milltown & Ballinode* ūüďĘ

Monaghan Integrated Development will begin to deliver

Smart Village Training in 2022. 

What is a Smart Village?

Smart Villages¬†are communities in rural areas that use¬†innovative solutions¬†to improve their¬†resilience¬†by building on¬†local strengths¬†and¬†opportunities.¬†They¬†take stock of local assets, use the best available¬†local knowledge¬†and take the initiative to shape the surrounding reality.¬†Smart Villages think¬†beyond the village¬†and understand that they exist surrounded by the countryside, other villages, towns and cities ‚Äď they also activate¬†linkages¬†and create clear¬†modes of communication¬†between all.¬†

Smart Villages Training¬†will be delivered over the course of¬†6 weeks¬†which will guide participants through the process of creating a ‚ÄėSmart Village Plan‚Äô for their area.

Training will be delivered throughout the year across all areas of Monaghan.

Monaghan Integrated Development are looking for individuals/businesses who are passionate about their community and who would like to be part of this new and exciting initiative that is coming to County Monaghan in 2022!

The Parish of Tydavnet has been chosen to be the first community in County Monaghan to pilot the Smart Village Training Programme. Training will be delivered by Etowz as part of the LEADER Co-operation Project which is being rolled out nationally.
