Duncan Stewart is a popular architect, environmentalist and media personality known for his environmental activism and extensive TV and radio work on RTÃ, including Eco Eye and About the House.Â
Sean Mahon, Southern Star managing director said: âWe're delighted Duncan will be joining us as speaker at this year's West Fork breakfast. We like to invite lively and stimulating speakers for our guests and Duncan certainly brings energy. Amongst other things he'll be talking about his passion for how local communities can develop sustainable models to help with self sufficiency and local resilience whilst creating employment and lowering reliance on imported foods and fossil fuels. Smart farming will also be part of his discussion. These topics are all very pertinent to West Cork.'
