We Know How to Make Learning Fun For Students
Educating students on environmental awareness
- Demonstrating the damage that is currently happening to our planet.
- Reducing our Carbon footprint.
- Food Miles, how much dose it cost to put food on your table.
- Pollution to our air and water systems.
- Addressing environmental challenges, Garbage islands, Deforestation etc.
- Everyday issues on caring for our local environment.
- Biodiversity problems locally and internationally.
- Ensuring our planet is healthier for future generations
- All our workshops are based on an interactive presentation that is an hour long, consisting of slide show, video and student participation. Depending on the age of the students and desired outcomes we can go into a deeper level of knowledge as required.
- The main objective of the workshop is the students will take home some knowledge while learning how to care for our environment.
- We also involve the students in local projects which may benefit their community.
- The students are engaged throughout the Workshop and will leave with new knowledge they can share with their families – helping them live a greener life.
Key Deliverables of Workshops:
- Help students to gain a greater understanding of the importance of our environment and how to maintain it.
- Create a new awareness to the damage that is being done to our local waterways and our oceans, through pollution and plastics.
- Discuss the negative effects and impact of single use plastics and failure to correctly recycle where possible, is a major problem worldwide today.
- Explore the new Sustainable energies for better futures i.e. wind farms, solar power and the benefits.
- Review “How” we can improve our carbon footprint in Ireland.
- Empower students to work together to ensure a cleaner future for generations to come in our own homes and local communities.
I was lucky to attend one of Envirokids presentation workshops. I found it very insightful and interesting.The content covered,I found especially interesting and educational with accompanying videos and pictures to put into prospective.There were a lot of younger children present at the workshop and Aidan got them all involved, Tasks during the presentation kept all the children interested throughout and eager to learn more. I would have no hesitation in highly recommending Envirokids workshop to any school or club.
The Great Pacific Garbage Patch is about 1.6 million square kilometers in size…
According to a three-year study published in Scientific Reports in 2018, the mass known as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch is about 1.6 million square kilometers in size — up to 16 times bigger than previous estimates. That makes it more than double the size of Texas or 3 times the size of France!
50% every 5 years!
Trash accumulates in 5 ocean garbage patches, the largest one being the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, located between Hawaii and California. If left to circulate, the plastic will impact our plane, ecosystems, health and economies. Solving it requires a combination of closing the source where the plastic comes from, and cleaning up what has already accumulated in the ocean.
The Ocean Cleanup develops advanced technologies to rid the world’s oceans of plastic. A full-scale deployment of our systems is estimated to clean up 50 % of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch every 5 years.
Biodiversity means the whole variety of life on earth – from your local community garden,to the rain forests and deserts, from the birds to the bees. The word is a phrase “biological diversity”, the term given to the variety of life on this planet.
A carbon footprint is: The total amount of greenhouse gases produced to directly and indirectly support persons activities, usually expressed in equivalent tons of carbon dioxide (CO2). … When you put the heating on in your house with oil, gas or coal, then you also generate CO2.
- Ireland is one of the worst in Europe for the Highest CarbonEmitters. …
- Your Water Has a High Carbon Footprint. … up0.5%.
- Paper Production Contributes to Carbon Emissions… Transportation and Storage.
- Food Production Accounts for 83% of Carbon Emissions Each Year. …
- Rubbish Can Add to Your Carbon Footprint Too.
Think of all the single-use items we use everyday… you’ll be surprised by how long they can take to decompose!
