14 Jun Young Environmentalist Awards 2023
Posted at 15:08h in General
Two teams from Dundalk Grammar School were represented at the ECO UNESCO Young Environmentalist Awards National Showcase Finals 2023 held in the National Convention Centre Dublin. Both groups came through 2 qualifying rounds to be selected for the National Showcase.
ENVIRONMENTAL EXPERT-EES, a group of 4 TY students, participated in the Senior Section. The focus of their project was on FAST FASHION. DGS YOUNG ENVIRONMENTALISTS, a team of two 1st Year students, participated in the Junior Section. Their project focussed on making their school a GREEN SCHOOL.
Both groups are very passionate about the environment and developing a greater awareness of all issues green. The students participated through the year in the Young Environmentalist Awards Programme run by ECO UNESCO, the senior group as part of TY and the junior group as part of their CSPE course. The Programme stimulated them to action and they were thrilled to be able to take their projects to the Convention Centre and exhibit them on a national stage.
The day capped a fine year for the students and their projects, who had also participated in the Young Social Innovators Programme.
A busy and fulfilling year for both groups.
