Teaching in Dublin provides you with a unique opportunity to look at climate change and actions to prevent it from a ‘city’ lens. The planting of trees is obviously very suitable, but space may not allow for a huge amount to be planted in certain locations. There is potential for raising awareness through surveys of the modes of transport for getting to school, etc. The Guards can be contacted to bring students on ‘safe cycles’ around public roads. It’s something we do each year (albeit in a ‘suburban’ setting), and there is a marked increase in the amount of children cycling after this. It also gives parents more peace of mind that they are safer in these scenarios.
