We at Green-Schools Ireland are very exciting to be able to take part in the annual Global Children’s Designathon (GCD) for the first time with six of our primary schools in Cork County.

The annual Global Children’s Designathon (GCD) is dedicated to celebrating what the world could be like when children are put in charge of designing better futures. The GCD is also a call for changemakers and climate education on a global scale.

On the 25th of January as part of the #LearningPlanet Festival and in conjunction with UNESCO’s International Day for Education DesignathonWorks are launching the Global Children’s Designathon 2022. In this series of events running towards the finals on the 9th of April 2022, children in classrooms and countries around the world will be designing and sharing solutions for ecosystem restoration as a way to tackle climate change.

We look forward to seeing the innovations our Irish students will be sharing with us!
