GEAI recently organised Climate Action days for Transition Year students of Mohill Community College. The goal of the three days was to raise awareness of climate change, and to encourage the class to plan and carry out innovative projects based on sustainability, e.g. energy, waste, food production, etc.
This initiative was a great success. All students participated enthusiastically and succeeded in carrying out Climate Actions that range from composting to raising funds for Irish Wildlife Trust; from interviews with the local community to litter picking. A highlight was a new Climate Change song composed and performed by four of the students! (We plan to record and publish the song shortly.)
