EcoEd4All had a super morning with Transition Year students in Coláiste Iognáid this week. The students were all awarded their Eco Advocate Awards after completing a half-day session of place-based learning out along the biodiverse-rich banks of the River Corrib. The field trip comprised students having to undertake habitat assessments, biodiversity data capture, water sampling tests, and then presenting their findings to the wider group in the newly established outdoor classroom at The Boathouse, Corrib Village.

The Transition Year students have also been offered the opportunity to become involved with an exciting EU Erasmus+ project, called Watersport4Green. This will involve selected TY students measuring and testing water quality and assessing the sources of and impacts of pollution in several key locations around the Corrib. This project will be run in collaboration with project partners from Italy and Portugal who will also be assessing their own waterbodies and compiling a digital project of their findings together with our Corrib Catchment findings.

A sincere thanks to LAWPRO, Local Authorities Water Programme for all their support with the Eco Advocates program.

EcoEd 4 All

EcoEd 4 All promotes an evidence based understanding of all aspects of climate change and biodiversity which includes all major environmental pressures and their solutions at a global and national level in Ireland. As this website cannot address issues that are most relevant to all local areas (rural/urban), this information needs to relate to the issues that concern each local area, relevant to each school, local community and sector of society.

To address these major environmental issues that are unfolding, we believe that environmental education is at the core of mitigating these pressures. Where teachers, community champions and environmental NGOs should be enabled to be inspired to take a leading role.
