Good Energies Alliance Ireland (GEAI) is an Irish Environmental NGO that works through research, advocacy, education and campaigning to influence public opinion and decision-makers in Ireland against on-shore unconventional hydrocarbon development (fracking) and towards practical policies on energy sources and uses that respect the environment, the planet and people. It is an accredited EVS hosting organisation, which is currently hosting 3 volunteers since September 2015, from France, Romania and Ukraine. It is now applying to host a fourth volunteer who will join the project in January 2016 and ensure continuity in summer 2017. In common with the current volunteers, the candidate identified has high capacity and is interested in the environment and sustainability. Non-formal and formal learning will be in evidence throughout the project, YouthPass will be achieved by all volunteers, who will use the YouthPass methodology to assess their progress and achievements during their EVS. Each volunteer will have a Mentor and work supervisors. They will work closely with the GEAI team, which is international, and the work environment is English-speaking. The aims of the Good Energies project are: a) To support the GEAI campaign for prohibition of unconventional shale gas (fracking) in Ireland and to support the campaign for the implementation of local, national and global policies to develop a carbon neutral world by 2050. b) To support the local community and youth in their social and cultural awareness, development and activities.The work of the volunteer who is identified in this project will include (in conjunction with the other 3 volunteers): 1. Organising and assisting project activities, including: a) Assisting GEAI to use advocacy in order to influence decision-makers nationally to raise awareness of issues around Climate Change b) Campaigning for sustainable energy sources and uses in future Irish Energy Policies. c) Campaigning against fracking and raising awareness of issues around its environmental and health impacts d) Maintaining and developing the GEAI website and social media functions. e) Managing/assisting with organisation of events, e.g. conferences, public meetings, etc.2. Working with other local groups, including Community Development group, Festival committee, Traditional Music Weekend committee. The volunteer will get the opportunity to work with the committees and other workers, engaging with local people and participating in local cultural events. 3. Supporting youth activities organised/coordinated by GEAI, including: a) Organisation and achievement of future Erasmus+ projects, e.g. EVS sending, Youth Exchange, etc. b) Liaising with local schools and colleges and promoting the aims of GEAI and Erasmus+ through workshops, cultural events or other projects.4. Supporting the organisation in providing continuity with regard to social media and administration in August 2016 when the current (3) volunteers will leave us and new volunteers will arrive. The results and impacts envisaged will be the enhancement of the campaign to tackle climate change, promote sustainable energy sources and uses, prevent the introduction of fracking to Ireland and influence decision-making on Energy policies regionally, nationally and Internationally. The campaign will gain more young supporters who will actively engage with the project and participate in new projects.The result for the volunteers will be improved competencies, personal and professional development, greater self-confidence and enhanced employability.
