Ambassador Programme – Summer 2023

We are now recruiting for the Foyle & Carlingford Ambassador Summer Programme 2023! 


DISCOVER more this summer with Loughs Agency’s exciting Foyle & Carlingford Ambassadors Programme. EXPLORE the waterways and the surrounding area through water-sports and environmental activities. Help CONSERVE this important natural area so it can be enjoyed for generations to come. SHARE your experiences with the wider world showing them how lucky you are to have this WILD and wonderful place on your doorstep.

The Foyle & Carlingford Ambassador programme is a FREE programme aimed at 14-17 year olds from the Foyle/Carlingford area (please check Catchment Map found in the information booklet) who are interested in the natural environment. The programme will run for five consecutive days. Please find programme dates below:

Programme dates:

  • Summer Programme 1 Foyle Catchment: 24th – 28th July (Deadline for applications now closed)
  • Summer Programme 2 Carlingford Catchment: 14th – 18th August (Deadline for applications: Friday 28th July)

Participants will have the opportunity to take part in a range of activities ranging from water-sports to conservation projects. Throughout the programme they will have the chance to discover Foyle/Carlingford areas, gain qualifications, learn new skills, make new friends and discover new possibilities and opportunities.

The common theme of the project is the lough and the purpose of the programme is to get young people connected with the rivers, its tributaries, estuary, coast, its wildlife and the recreational opportunities it holds. The hope is that participants on the programme will develop a new and positive understanding of the lough and its resources.

The programme is delivered by Loughs Agency in partnership with Cooperation Ireland and supported by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade’s Reconciliation Fund.
