TY students of Coláiste Éamann Rís learn about SDGs with SERVE

Building active global citizens of today

Coláiste Éamann Rís TY students at SERVE HQ in Scala

SERVE is currently facilitating a 6-week SDG Champions Programme with Coláiste Éamann Rís TY students. The programme will conclude next week.

This programme has been funded by the Department of Education as part of their Education for Sustainable Development Strategy.  

The programme involves 2 hour long interactive workshops across six weeks with TY students. The students explore topics related to the Sustainable Development Goals and how they can become global citizens to achieve these goals.

The programme started with TY students visiting SERVE at our HQ in Scala where they explored the Global Goals (SDG) Trail. 

Members of the SERVE team visited the school for further workshops on topics such as fast fashion, plastic pollution and climate action.

Brian Kenny, teacher at Coláiste Éamann Rís commented, “The SDG Programme is a huge success with our TY group. Students have commented that the content is easy to understand, and they really enjoy the interactive nature of the delivery. They especially enjoyed the walking debates.

The Programme makes the topic relatable and accessible for our group of students. They have been really engaged and enthused by the various topics and have carried their learning into other subjects as has been mentioned by other subject teachers, namely economics.”

We look forward to the final workshop with the students. Together with their teachers, we hope that they can take their learnings from this programme further to become active global citizens and change makers.
