The Climate Action and Environment Minister is to hold a series of 'town hall' meetings on the Government's climate plan.
It comes after the Government revealed details of the plan earlier this week.
Richard Bruton is hosting the first of at least six meetings tonight in Cork to "explain the approach, hear views and take on ideas".
His department says feedback will be taken into account for a Climate Action Plan 2020, which will be published next year.
Minister Bruton said:"Government, with the best will in the world, can't deliver the change. We need every enterprise, every farm, every home to start thinking about things like how they heat their home... how they travel... the sort of changes they can make in practical terms.
"I think it's really important that we engage with people in the communities, up and down the country."
Tánaiste Simon Coveney will also attend the Cork meeting.
Published on Monday, the Government's climate plan has 180 recommendations across all government departments in a bid to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050.
The plan has been welcomed by many interest groups and official bodies, but others have raised concerns.
A number of opposition parties claimed the plan lacks the ambition and change to "truly tackle the climate crisis".
Minister Bruton has insisted it is a "sensible and fair path" towards change in every sector.
