Posted in Connect on October 25, 2019.

Do you have a project or potential project that will help your school act on the climate and biodiversity emergency? Mayo County Council will give €500 to the best school project that helps address this emergency. Your school can undertake a project on any element of the climate and biodiversity emergency such as plastic, food, energy, fashion, water, transport and biodiversity.

The successful projects will receive €500 funding at the awards ceremony in January 2020 to implement the project in your school. All you have to do is send us a description of your project, outline how it tackles the climate and biodiversity emergency and include information on how you will spend the €500 on your project. For more information please see contact

There are two categories; Primary & Secondary schools and the submission deadline is the 6th December 2019.
