Water is one of the core themes of the Green-Schools programme. The Water theme looks at developing awareness around water conservation and how to effectively manage this important resource in our schools and at home.
The Water theme is sponsored by Uisce Éireann.
During 2019/2020 Green-Schools students saved 592 million litres of water. That’s enough to fill 20 olympic sized swimming pools, or make 2.3 billion cups of tea!
