This resource is an outcome of Waterford’s Global Schools Programme which is funded by Irish Aid’s WorldWise Global Schools and Concern Worldwide. Each year we work with a group of Transition Year Students on a global topic. After intensive training from Centre Staff, TYs design their own workshop which they then deliver to primary schools across Waterford. This year we focussed on Rainforests and Sustainability.
This resource includes a workshop plan and support materials for a 60-minute workshop designed for 1st to 3rd year CSPE classes. The workshop looks at the Sustainable Develop- ment Goals with a specific focus on Goal 13 which calls for urgent action to be taken to combat climate change. The workshop then delves deeper into the Rainforests and looks at actions that young people can take on their own or as part of the school community to protect this vital resource.
