Global Action Plan Ireland delivers workshops in primary and secondary schools tailored to each group’s interests, schedule, and abilities.
We run participative workshops covering a range of themes, such as Biodiversity, Energy conservation, Global Citizenship, Waste, Water, Fast Fashion. For more specific information about each workshop please click the links and check out our pages for Primary Schools and Secondary Schools. All workshops have strong links to the national curriculum with specific, practical actions each student, teacher, and school can easily implement to make a significant environmental impact.
All workshops are designed and adapted for the age and context we deliver it in. These can be delivered in your classroom or over Zoom, depending on your need and what policy you have in place regarding external facilitators. For in class delivery, we follow all HSE Guidelines to ensure a safe and fun experience for the whole school.
Workshops are normally between 45 mins and 1.5 hours depending on time availability in schools and the theme being covered. We provide time for Q&A in all sessions.
For secondary and TY teachers, we run a programme called Action on Global Citizenship that explores themes of sustainable development, climate action and our impact as global citizens through a lens of Global Citizenship Education. It’s a great programme for 1st years up to TY. For more information check our our website page: Action on Global Citizenship .
We also provide a range of support for teachers through regular training events and our Action on Global Citizenship toolkit, which supports teachers in facilitating GCE lessons. Our Teacher Toolkit is jam-packed with student-centred activities and resources, including templates for carrying out action plans in schools. It’s available in English and Irish, and best of all, it’s free! You can learn more and download the toolkit here.
