Together with and for Community

UCC Community Gardens are jointly owned by the Environmental Society and the International Development Society and are run by staff and students of UCC. This student-led event was championed by former Co-Chair of UCC Green Campus, Mark Falvey and Sophie O'Callaghan, Climate Ambassador with An Taisce.

UNIC CityLabs: The UNIC European University is an alliance of eight universities educating through teaching, research and community engagement, towards inclusive societies. Central to this, is the collaborative work of UNIC CityLabs to create physical and virtual meeting points where students, citizens, academia and city stakeholders work together to identify and solve societal challenges faced by post-industrial superdiverse cities. During Community Week staff, students and city representatives from across the eight European partner cities convene in Liege for the inaugural CityLabs Festival.

UCC Community Week: This event is part of UCC Community Week 2021. During Community Week, staff and students across the university come together with community and public sector partners to host community focussed events and activities. The week long programme of events celebrates UCC as a civically engaged university.
