The effects of climate change are here and now, both at local and global levels. By becoming a Climate Ambassador you have a great opportunity to do something positive within your locality to address this situation. We look forward to working with you on this new and exciting programme of climate actions.
Why get involved?
Become a Climate Leader!
The Climate Ambassador programme is a brand new programme being offered to individuals in Ireland. It is a great opportunity to become a climate leader in your school, campus or community and to promote positive actions in a local context.
The Environmental Education Unit operates some of Ireland’s most successful environmental programmes such as Green-Schools, Blue Flag, Green Campus, Clean Coasts and National Spring Clean.
Meet others who Share Your Passion
The programme will run for 12 months and during that time we will provide opportunities to meet with our Climate Action Officers and other Climate Ambassadors throughout the programme, so you can share and learn from each other’s experiences.
Learn more about Climate & Communications
You will receive a full day of training which will cover climate change causes, effects and solutions. We will also provide training from communications experts. This training day will be a great opportunity to meet your Climate Action Officers, who will provide ongoing support and to also meet the other Climate Ambassadors.
You will be required to carry out at least four actions within your community/school/campus. With our support and advice, you could organise a local Climate Conversation event; or set-up a radio interview with your local station. We will have plenty of simple, yet effective ideas and look forward to hearing yours!
You will be asked to compile a brief report about what you have been doing during your time as a Climate Ambassador. All participates will receive certificates for their work and Climate Heroes will be selected for special awards at a prestigious ceremony at the end of the programme. This event is a great way to celebrate and recognise all of your work completed throughout the year.
