Coláiste Muire Green Schools members pictured above at the Green Schools Expo, which took place in the RDS Dublin on the 22nd of February. The event focused this year on Climate Action and what we can do in our schools, home and communities to combat climate change. The Colaiste Muire’s green schools members had recently created a short video on “Greener Travel” and were asked to host a stand at the event displaying the video and to present the travel theme. There were six themed zones at the expo in total, each with a different focus: Water, Transport, Biodiversity, Litter & Waste, Energy and Global Citizenship.
Five thousand pupils attended the event in an action packed day full of interactive exhibits with activities and information for all ages. There was a hands on workshop area, a Climate Lab zone, stands showcasing initiatives, programmes and services and a day long schedule of Guest Speakers from the National and International stage.
