Outreach

KerryLIFE Outreach

A key element of the KerryLIFE project is raising public awareness of the freshwater pearl mussel and dissemination of the project results.

This will be achieved through a number of means, including the

  • delivery of a dedicated schools education programme
  • delivery of training events and workshops for farmers, forest-owners and policy makers
  • a proactive media campaign
  • annual community events
  • public information events
  • project publications
  • project conference.

In addition the KerryLIFE will engage with the wider community through the development of a number of initiatives to sustain the rural community. Initiatives will include the

  • establishment of a farm-based brand
  • establishment of a consumer supplier network
  • on-farm tourism infrastructure
  • a community walkway
