Getting there

  • Consider using the Transport for Ireland website to plan your trip and see if you can avail of public transport for all or part of your journey.

  • Why not carpool? Contact the Green-Schools office to ask if schools in your area are attending the awards – maybe you could get a minibus together?

  • Practice park ‘n’ striding! If you’re coming part of the way by car, why not park further from the venue and walk or scoot the rest? You’ll arrive alert for the ceremony and hungry for a celebratory lunch!
