Global Citizenship Travel is the newest theme of the Green-Schools programme. The ultimate aim of the theme is to continue your school’s work on encouraging walking, cycling, scooting, using public transport or carpooling to school. This theme will allow you to discover how your work on the Green-Schools programme is having a positive effect on global issues including air quality and sustainable development. The Global Citizenship Travel theme is funded by the Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport and supported by the National Transport Authority.

For this theme we have chosen four of the most relevant Sustainable Development Goals: 3, 10, 11, and 13, for schools to focus on.

The Travel and Global Citizenship themes were daunting at first but support from our Education Officer has been invaluable. The Sustainable Development goals link well with the Transport theme and the materials provided help children learn that anything they can do in their daily lives can help others like themselves. The assistance and back up of the Education officer is a key support for our school.
