ECOLISE, the European network for community-led initiatives on climate change and sustainability, whose communications co-ordinator, Iva Pocock, is based in Cloughjordan ecovillage, has won a prestigious international award.

The 2019 Lush Spring Prize recognises projects from all over the world that are dedicated to regenerating ecological and social systems. ECOLISE won the Influence prize category - for initiatives that are “real game changers, and are building and strengthening the global regenerative movement” - for its work in promoting community-led climate action and collaboration across Europe. ECOLISE has members in 20 countries, including Cultivate Living & Learning, also based in Cloughjordan. Iva and ECOLISE executive director Eamon O’Hara, who lives in France, received the award on behalf of the network in London last week.
