Climate Education Program

ELP has devised a novel Education Program for Irish primary schools to encourage more schoolchildren to grow and consume food in an environmentally sustainable, climate smart way.

This solution focused, Food Forest- Climate Education Program was developed by teachers, for teachers, and in November 2021 was launched in local primary schools in Co. Mayo.

How it works?

Participating primary school teachers receive a pack containing a set of Lesson Plans which are directly curriculum linked. The resources provided are intended to teach students how our food choices can have both a positive and negative impact on climate change. We understand that the issue of climate change has become a worrying and growing issue recently. Some children are very concerned or anxious and the program we have compiled is intended to be a positive, solutions-based approach to the issue. Each of the strand units and learning outcomes are clearly stated as they are in the curriculum, in order to assist lesson planning.
