Green-Schools Marine Week 2021

April 19 - April 23
| Free

Welcome to Marine Week! Green-Schools first ever weeklong celebration of the sea! We are going to be covering so many interesting topics this week and are so excited for you to join us. You can learn about types of Jellyfish in Ireland, different hand signals divers use underwater, how an Irish student invented a solution to the microplastics problem and what you can do to be a better global citizen. 

Each day, there will be new activities uploaded to this webpage. Bookmark the page now so you can easily tune in throughout the week. 

There will also be live talks on each day this week, and the links to access these talks have been emailed to registered teachers.  

We would love to hear from you throughout the week! Prizes will be up for grabs for schools that tag us in their marine week fun on social media (use #MarineWeek21). You could even win your class sea-themed cupcakes!  

If you have any queries throughout the week, please contact Chloe at cdevlin@eeu.antaisce.org or Caoimhe at 087 1193246
