Today we celebrate UN #WorldWaterDay 2019, and what better way to acknowledge it than to look at the work that ECO-UNESCO
is carrying out with young people across Ireland?
Youth for Sustainable Development
Our Youth for Sustainable Development Programme always celebrate World Water Day by taking an action.
2017: Faciliated an event in Europe House that focused on three Sustainable Development Goals: Clean Water and
Sanitation, Sustianable Cities and Communities, and Life Below Water
2018: Ran water-themed workshops at the Young Environmentalist Awards semi-final 'ECO-Dens'
2019: Interviewed the general public on their water consumption habits (stay tuned for the video!)
Inspired by the work they completed on the ECO-Choices programme, Stanhope Street Secondary schoolare
taking it upon themselves to organise a beach clean-up.
In order to highlight ocean pollution and in an effort to brighten up their school they hope to turn this
unwanted rubbish into artwork, and to feature in their school as a sustainable way to transform unwanted waste.
