Eco Advocate 1 Day Course
There are lifelong benefits to getting Transition Year students involved in the TY Eco Advocate Course
The one-day Eco Advocate course which is based on the EcoEd4All programme themes, is a field trip experience that gives students the opportunity to connect directly with and explore the themes of Biodiversity, Climate Change, Water/Air Pollution and Circular Economy. This course will equip the student with a practical understanding of the core elements of the online EcoEd4All Course and enable them to become involved in a youth advocacy capacity to bring value to their TY programme and in their school. The course allows students the opportunity to work in a fun and interactive environment in the great outdoors.
- One half or full day field trip (e.g. Bird watch Ireland Biodiversity Trails / NUI Galway Biodiversity Campus / Western Way Trail or Clonbur Woods – full day and transport required).
- The field trip will be facilitated by a Trail Leader and will involve exploring, surveying and recording local habitats and species, discussing and observing causes and effects of climate change and pollution on local ecosystems.
- All participants are to be given meaningful leadership roles and responsibility on the day and are expected to complete the online EcoEd4all themes upon completion of the field trip.
