Walk for Water – Glendalough, Sligo and Killarney
Green-Schools are delighted to host our fun and educational ‘Walk for Water’ events in 3 locations across Ireland this March:
- Glendalough National Park, Wicklow on Tuesday the 21st of March – see information here
- Hazelwood Forest Trail, Sligo on Wednesday the 22nd of March – see information here
- Killarney National Park, Kerry on Thursday the 23rd of March – see information here
These events are being organised as part of World Water Day 2023 and the theme this year is “Accelerating Change” to solve the water and sanitation crisis. (Learn more about what you can do here) The event involves children from Senior Primary and Secondary schools (max 10 per school) walking 6 kilometres through beautiful scenery, with up to 6 litres of water in a backpack, to raise awareness about water scarcity in developing countries. We will also help to interpret the landscape on the day, provide a bag to carry the water in and some snacks. There are also talks from National Parks staff organised and fun activities.
