MOTION: Councillor F. Timmons

“Despite getting status a few years ago, there is still no marking that states Clondalkin is a Fairtrade town. This committee supports that Clondalkin Fairtrade Towns calls for appropriate signage outside SDCC Clondalkin to mark this huge achievement.”



Fairtrade incorporates social and environmental elements which are already supported by the Council including through our Sustainable Business Programme in partnership with South Dublin Chamber.

Given the inherent principle of local business/community involvement, a Fairtrade campaign in the County that involves a range of measures including bringing local businesses, community groups and other interested parties together should be led by a local group who can develop an appropriate promotional and awareness campaign.  No such group has approached the Council for support in such a campaign recently but representatives from the Sustainable Business Programme and the Local Enterprise Office are available to meet with any such local organisers to discuss their proposed actions and to explore possible supports that can be offered to them including for promotional material, signage etc.
