What's on?

Plant the Seed of Knowledge

We are celebrating each of the 65,000 young people that have taken action to protect the environment in local communities all over Ireland as part of the Young Environmentalist Awards over the last 25 years.   
Your donation to ECO-UNESCO, not matter how big or small, would help us plant 65,000 seeds, to acknowledge and celebrate each and everyone of these young people and help us reach even more young people over the coming year.  

Your donation will help us plant the seed of knowledge, and inspire even more young people to learn the skills and take action to protect our plant, now and in the future.  Thank you.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
