The Take 1 Programme is funded by the Department of Education in Ireland
Launching May Day for Sustainability 2023 ~ This year schools are encouraged to participate in the 'Metre of Meadow' campaign. Find a spot anywhere on the school grounds, the more unused and unfertile the better and just 'let it go'. No need to plant wildflowers or adjust the soil, just let natural biodiversity takes its course. Track the changes with photos and videos and share what you find - insects, plants, birds on the Take 1 Programme twitter account @Take1_Programme Don't forget to use the hashtags - #mayday2023 #take1programme
Expressions of interest are now being sought from second level schools who would like to participate in a pilot programme of training on embedding Education for Sustainable Development in learning and teaching. See further information in DESCRIPTION
