The aim of this Report is to raise awareness and to highlight that poverty and social exclusion are not just urban issues but are very much evident in rural communities in Ireland. It looks at how poverty and social exclusion can be exacerbated as a result of living in a rural area.
Just Transition and Wellbeing for Rural Communities Survey
Irish Rural Link and Social Justice Ireland are undertaking a joint research project examining rural communities, wellbeing and a Just Transition. We would be very grateful if you could circulate this short survey to your members.
The purpose of this survey is to get the views of rural dwellers and rural communities on a Just Transition, and how the wellbeing of rural communities can be improved. At this very important juncture in Irish life, as we begin? to implement the policies to meet our national climate goals by 2030, your views and the views of your wider network are vital to developing a clear picture of the potential impact on rural communities across Ireland.
The survey will remain open until the 31/07/2022. We aim to present preliminary results at the end of September, with a full report to be published later in 2022.
