August is meant to be a relatively quiet month for PR and public affairs, but DHR Communications has been busy working on a number of client projects. This week alone, we’ve had the launch of Active Retirement Ireland’s new website, www.activeirl.ie, with Eamon Ryan TD, Minister for Communications, Energy and Natural Resources, and the publication of a report by Comhar Sustainable Development Council on how Ireland can enhance and develop its green infrastructure.
We also spent all day yesterday in Limerick, delivering the first day of a three-day training programme to representatives of the New Communities Partnership. The training focuses on building the media and advocacy skills of new community leaders, and follows on from the successful delivery of a similar training programme with participants in Dublin. We also delivered media training to Threshold last week.
Our work on the WebActivate project, meanwhile – which is supported by The Digital Hub – is ongoing: the project is currently focused on signing up small to medium-sized enterprises that would like to get their websites improved or even built from scatch, free of charge.
And in recent weeks, we’ve also worked on the launch of gosave.ie, a new saver card that will enable Irish consumers to save hundreds of euro each year and find the best-value deals within their local communities and nationwide. The gosave cards also provide a great opportunity for non-profit organisations to raise much-needed funds.
