“The Department of the Communications, Climate Action and Environment invites comments from interested parties on the implementation in Ireland of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) Convention on Access to Information, Public Participation in Decision-making and Access to Justice in Environmental Matters (known as the Aarhus Convention) in Ireland.
A draft National Implementation Report 2017 has been prepared and comments on this draft are now invited in accordance with the recommendations of the Aarhus Convention secretariat. It is an edited, updated version of the previous first National Implementation Report for Ireland, which was completed in 2014. ”
This is worth some of your time if you value collaboration and the publication right to information and participation.

Please feel free to share this, make a submission and encourage others. We need to shape how governments do collaboration.
