Let's get wise about waste

This workshop explores the climate crisis and its consequences. Planet Earth supports life through clean air, fresh water and food, and inspires us with its beauty. Pupils will be supported to creatively celebrate their connection to nature through art and written reflection.

The workshop will encourage care for the environment and each other, with simple ways to take action now against the climate emergency.

The activities will support and inspire pupils to understand how the planet and people are impacted by climate change, deforestation and pollution. Climate activists will share their experiences and advice for young people. The workshop is targeted at Key Stage 2 and Second Level pupils and delivered in collaboration with the Great Science Share for Schools.

Taking care of the planet and ourselves

As we make plans to take care of the earth, we also need to take care of ourselves. Yoga is an ancient Indian practice that allows us to stretch our bodies and breathe deeply so that we can keep our blood flowing and our minds at peace. Annelise Piers offers 10 min or 40 min chair based yoga and breathing practices, for the classroom or home.
