Thank you for your post, I enjoyed reading through it. You made some great points of how we can raise awareness among the children we teach about renewable, affordable and ‘green’ sources of energy. Particularly because some children in your school have experienced a shortage at some point.
That is an eye-opening statistic also that in 2030 nearly 700 million people will still live without electricity. A lot of children tend to live in their own ‘bubble’ and it is important we highlight that not everyone, globally, is as fortunate as many of us in Ireland. It is important also to make children aware of how their own actions can impact the globe. We can inform them of how to be better global citizens to protect our planet and to live sustainably.
