Launch Event – INTERREG VA Collaborative Action for the Natura Network Project (CANN)

Tuesday 12 June 2018

Nuremore Hotel, Carrickmacross, Co. Monaghan

Across Ireland, Northern Ireland and Scotland, the natural environment is threatened, important habitats are deteriorating, and diversity in both plant and wildlife species is in decline. Coming under additional pressure are local peatlands, wetlands, and freshwater lakes, and the species which live there.

The CANN Project is a €8.3 million project, supported by the EU’s INTERREG VA programme, (managed by the Special EU Programmes Body) with match funding provided by the Department of

Housing, Planning and Local Government in Ireland, by the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs in Northern Ireland, and by Scottish Natural Heritage in Scotland.

Over five years, this cross–border environmental project which spans Ireland, Northern Ireland and Scotland will protect endangered species and restore natural habitats.  The CANN Project is being led by Newry, Mourne and Down District Council in partnership with 10 other organisations consisting of scientific and research institutions, public sector bodies, charities and community organisations.

Please save the date, Tuesday 12th June 2018, and join us at the Nuremore Hotel, Carrickmacross, County Monaghan for this exciting launch event.

Further details and a formal invite to follow soon.
