Secondary Schools Educational Programme
Helping young people make sense of environmental sustainability at home, in school and in their future workplace.
The "Building a Greener Future" programme, centers around the basics of Environmental Sustainability for Secondary School students.
The emphasis of this course is on the measurement, monitoring and reduction of energy, water and waste in the student’s household.
The programme offers practical examples of how one can achieve a lower carbon footprint lifestyle and how very similar methods can then be applied to their schools or even future workplace. As the student learns about carbon emissions and how to actively reduce them, we are preparing them to become the Green Managers of the future.
Secondary Schools from the Kildare & Wicklow areas in Ireland can now avail of this programme fully funded by the Kildare & Wicklow Education & Training Board.

Why are we not listening to Generation Tomorrow?
The Fridays for Future movement should not exist, not because their claims are not valid, but because children should not have to tell adults how to behave resonsibly. Many people criticise Gretta Thumberg, they say she is too radical and angry, they say she only presents the problems but never comes up with any solutions. This type of thinking puzzles me.
