Further Information

Have you ever been to a World Café event? Join us for a regional Climate Hope Forum, meet like-minded, solutions-oriented teachers and students, and find out how we can all work together to create a bigger impact on climate change. First, looking at the top-down approach we will explore what the government and industry is doing to tackle climate change – what more can we ask them to do as citizens? Then we will celebrate what our Green-Schools and Climate Ambassadors are doing already from the ground-up and how you can use the network of schools to make a bigger impact – how can your students’ best ideas be replicated across Ireland?

Application is essential so please contact our Climate Action Officer Gráinne on the details below if you wish to attend:
