The area of climate change that affects my school in Dublin the most is coastal erosion. In Ireland, as an island we are seeing huge problems in this area and while each local authority has preservation plans, there is currently no national plan. We would look at how climate change is causing the earth to heat up and the water levels to rise. We would discuss the global impact that this is having on wildlife and ecosystems. Then we would look closer to home and investigate the effects that this is having in IRELAND. We will take a few examples of rivers flooding before looking at how Dublin is coping with this global change. I will show the children some examples of how Dublin is trying to minimise the damage of rising sea levels. The children will work in groups and make a national plan for dealing with rising sea levels. We will finish by identifying a few ways that we can make a difference as a school by conserving energy.
