I have chosen goal 7 which is Affordable and Clean Energy. This goal aims to “ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all”. This is a very topical issue at present, particularly as energy prices in Ireland are rising exponentially. Our own school energy bill has increased significantly. As a whole school community we could investigate how we could reduce our energy consumption within the school. I think having children complete energy project, looking at how we can save energy at home and at school would be very productive exercise. We could then look at how electricity and energy is not guaranteed in lots of countries worldwide. We could look at energy inequality between different countries. The children could research sustainable energy sources and how we can utilise this to more effect in the locality. There is a local wind farm that we could visit or have some representatives visit our school to highlight the importance of renewable energy.
