Ecounesco

Monday, August 19th, 2013

The other day on my way back from the Coombe I found Ecounesco.

Eco-Unesco is Ireland’s Environmental Education and Youth organisation affiliated to the World federation of UNESCO clubs, Centres and Associations.

They are a registered Irish charity and their aims are:

  • to raise environmental awareness, understanding and knowledge of the environment among young people
  • to promote the protection and conservation of the environment
  • to promote the personal development of young people through practical environmental projects and activities
  • to promote the ideals of UNESCO

They have a bunch of activities and events for people of all ages, children (summer, Easter, xmas camps), teenagers (workshops, clubs..), and even workshops for adults (training you in environmental trades)!

It is worth while to take a look at their website or go down to them in 17 St Andrew Street,
Dublin 2.

Cúl Green

Friday, June 7th, 2013

The Cúl Green initiative began in 2008; it is an exciting joint initiative between the GAA and Electric Ireland, aimed at making Croke Park a carbon-neutral stadium.

I think it sounds a really good initiative. What I really like about it is that it is an Irish one and that it is about an Irish landmark! If you would like to get more information about it visit their web site.
