In Dublin where I teach, climate change is impacting our local community through extreme weather events and rising temperatures. To engage my primary school pupils, I would use a multi-faceted approach for these three actions. Firstly, interactive lessons and discussions would help them understand local climate impacts. Secondly, hands-on activities like creating a school garden and tree-planting would foster a connection with nature. Lastly, energy audits and promoting responsible energy usage would involve the wider community and instill sustainable habits. Through education, practical activities, and community involvement, we can empower students to take meaningful action against climate change. Together, we can advocate for sustainability, reduce our carbon footprint, and build a greener and more resilient future for Dublin and beyond.
