We are proud of the MyNI community, and like to think of each and every one of you as part of our planet-earth loving team.
We have been equally inspired by the actions of individuals living in Northern Ireland trying to do their bit for the environment as we have by the pretty amazing organisations working to help make us all more aware of the impact of climate change at a local level.
MyNI believes we can all achieve so much more by coming together and sharing our thoughts, actions and social content. This is the space where you can see what’s happening, who is doing it, how you can get involved and maybe even get some inspiration to do your bit too!
Success through collaboration
Environment Marine & Fisheries Group, DAERA
“MyNI provides the Environment Marine & Fisheries Group, NIEA and other parts of DAERA with an engaging channel to drive ‘Climate Action’ in collaboration with trusted partners. The need to change our ways and address climate change is the single most important challenge that all of society must now respond to.
The resulting combined engagement through MyNI is what will really reinforce the changes that we can all make and so help towards making Nature stronger and the lives of people living and working in Northern Ireland better
“The UK Government is committed to delivering an all of UK COP26 in Glasgow and we are pleased to be working with the Northern Ireland Executive to ensure an inclusive and ambitious summit for the whole of the UK. All parts of the UK have important roles to play in ensuring the success of COP26, and we are delighted to see the launch of the Northern Ireland Climate Action campaign, which we hope will inspire action ahead of the summit. “
Derry City & Strabane District Council
“MyNI is filling the gap that exists for an engaging and trusted cross-sectoral brand for Northern Ireland’s ‘Climate Action’ sector. Through the collaboration and coordination of campaigns we have forged strong links and maximised impact bringing local initiatives to a regional audience in a creative, engaging way. With lots of activities on climate action and green infrastructure in the pipeline we hope to strengthen this teamwork helping increase awareness and protect our planet.”
Ulster Farmers’ Union
“The Ulster Farmers’ Union is delighted to be collaborating with MyNI as an official partner. By working together, we will be able to co-ordinate our activities and the information we share will gain a wider reach benefiting our environment and those who live in NI. Farmers and their businesses are subjected to weather conditions daily and are keen to do their fair share to reduce emissions and mitigate climate change. The agricultural and land use sector is a vital part of the climate change solution.”
National Trust NI
“As a conservation charity we protect and care for places so people and nature can thrive. Access to nature and the historic environment are essential to our health and wellbeing, but they urgently need more care. Looking after special places across Northern Ireland, we rely on government organisations like DAERA to support our conservation work and have found MyNI to be a valuable online platform in championing this cause.”
Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful
“Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful’s new strategy explains our values including the need for ongoing positivity and increasing collaboration and these are both very evident in MyNI communications, which are amplifying complementary messages to all our audiences in a highly constructive manner. It is also allowing better tracking of our combined impact as we seek to mobilise support for climate action and nature recovery as well providing solutions to tackling waste and pollution. We are excited to see the ambitious work of MyNI taking shape providing a cross-sectoral focal point for positive environmental action. “
“We have had the pleasure of collaborating with MyNI for two years creating a powerful link between mental wellbeing and being out in nature, harvesting mindfulness as we venture to beautiful spaces across Northern Ireland. The benefits of nature are great in number, it can have a positive impact on both your mental and physical wellbeing- It can improve mood, reduce stress and anger, and raise relaxation; our partnership with MyNI amplifies these factors whilst encouraging us all to get out into nature and see what is right on our doorstep. “
“As a result of COVID 19 last year, we saw a 20% increase in the waste for recycling we collect and had to change how we asked for materials to be sorted. We had to find innovative ways to communicate this to the public with social media being the major tool. MyNI developed a fantastic video for us to explain these changes, in a very new and unique style which we feel resonated well with people.
I think the content that MyNI produces is excellent, it’s informal, engaging and highly appealing to the general public. I found the team great to work with and I’m looking forward to continue working with MyNI during this Year of Climate Action”
“RSPB NI works with My NI to amplify content and activities to help audiences connect with nature and become motivated and confident to take action to save it. It is a useful sharing platform for engaging content from government and other sectors”
Business in the Community NI
“Business in the Community NI was delighted to partner with MyNI on the NI Climate Action campaign which helped us raise awareness of our call-to-action for businesses to sign the Climate Action Pledge, and commit to reducing their greenhouse gas emissions by 2020. It’s through collaboration that businesses in Northern Ireland can make a real difference to address the climate emergency and working with MyNI gave us the opportunity to come together with others to raise awareness of what can be done as well as reach a wider audience with our message on social media”
WRAP Northern Ireland
“WRAP Northern Ireland has worked closely with MyNI since its inception as both teams share WRAP’s vision of a world where resources are used sustainably. Working in partnership we seek positive, measurable changes in waste prevention and recycling behaviours through coordination and amplification of each other’s citizen-facing communications.”
Climate Northern Ireland
“Climate Northern Ireland is a cross-sectoral network devoted to increasing understanding of climate change impacts and risks within Northern Ireland and promoting the adaptation and mitigation actions necessary to address these. We are delighted to join forces with MyNI in encouraging and helping more climate action across Northern Ireland and we look forward to working with MyNI in the run up to COP26.”
