Climate Heroes

Climate Heroes are going the extra mile to make changes for Nature and for a healthy and prosperous future in Northern Ireland. They’re helping to cut carbon emissions and helping to ease the pressures on Nature.

We all probably know of at least one local Climate Hero and we want to blow their trumpets here, as part of our ‘Northern Ireland Climate Action’ campaign. They all deserve some appreciation and their stories will also help to influence others.

If you have a story to tell, please send it to us, with a few images.

We’ll be publishing all these great stories here and in the week beginning 4th October, we’ll be asking people to vote for their favourite local hero.

There are indeed many Climate Heroes living and working in Northern Ireland and you could well be one of them!

A Climate Hero can be an individual, a business, a community, a farmer or landowner, a family, a council or an organisation who either:

  1. has a great story to tell, about what they have done or are doing to help nature to thrive and to help tackle climate change or
  2. has a tried and tested product or a service that is helping others to help nature and to tackle climate change.

Our ‘Climate Heroes’

They will show how their actions are benefiting nature, themselves, their pockets or their bottom lines, whilst also helping to tackle climate change!

The MyNI team wants to feature your Climate Heroes stories here and tell people about them through our social channels.

These stories can be blogs, videos or short articles. 

If you have one already made, then that’s perfect!

Please send it to us at myni@daera-ni.gov.uk
