About

Education for Sustainability CLG is a non- profit social enterprise aimed at increasing climate literacy and fostering behaviour change in Ireland. Founded by Susan Adams in 2017, as a response to the escalating decline of the natural world, it is our mission to ensure that the young people of today are educated about the climate crisis and that they have the knowledge, skills and tools to take action so they can be informed and empowered stakeholders for the future.

Education for Sustainability executes a variety of educational programmes such as workshops, teacher training and a 10-week climate literacy course for 6th class up to transition year. It is our vision to create a world where young people are actively engaged in taking action for sustainable development by making environmental education and sustainability a fundamental part of the national curriculum. 

We are passionate about empowering young people to be the change they wish to see in the world through environmental education.

Newpark Comprehensive School: Irelands first single use plastic free school

Newpark is home to Ireland’s first single use plastic free school. This was a student led campaign that was an initiative from the Education for Sustainability 8-week transition year module. The workshop offered the students a platform to take action on an environmental topic that was important to them. 14 students worked together to rid their school of single use plastic by designing a strategic campaign that worked with school stakeholders and that targeted every level of the school community and the outside businesses.
