€33,000 Allocated For Sustainable Development Projects In Wicklow Schools

Funding amounts of between €1,000 and €5,000 are being paid to schools who successfully proposed their 2023 / 2024 sustainability projects for funding under the second National Strategy – ESD to 2030.

Minister for Education Norma Foley TD said: “It is timely to announce this funding during the opening of COP28, the 28th annual United Nations (UN) climate meeting, in Dubai today. 

“It is inspiring to see the wide range of creative and innovative projects which schools proposed and congratulations to all of those who are now receiving this vital funding which will help them turn their ideas into reality. Whether pupils will now progress to develop active wildlife walkways, nesting boxes for birds, bike libraries, weather stations, Fair Trade mini companies, or any one of a whole host of other projects, they will be leading the way on promoting sustainable development in their communities.”
