ECO-WEEK from 14th -18th November 2022

ECO-WEEK is a week of FREE, online events which are centered around raising awareness around environmental issues, the Sustainable Development Goals and COP27. It will incorporate workshops based on themes of the Young Environmentalist Awards (YEA) environmental categories as well as special COP themed events. 

This week-long event will consist of 10 different sustainability workshops throughout the week, each with a different environmental theme and topic. These workshops are suitable for 5th Class, 6th Class and secondary school classes to join in live. 

The aim of this ECO-Week is to inspire and empower young people to take environmental action in their school or community, while also providing youth with an opportunity to explore current environmental affairs, such as COP27, climate justice and help them to learn more about the amazing work of invited guest speakers and Irish environmental organisations.

Classes can participate in one, or all workshops throughout the week of the 14th-18th November. Whatever suits your schedule best!
