Galway students’ Juicy Project
On Monday Elaine Nevin, National Director of ECO-UNESCO, visited Salerno Secondary School in Galway to see the project the young people there had submitted for this years ECO-UNESCO Young Environmentalist Awards. Anyone for a bicycle powered fruit smoothie?…
Throughout the year, the young environmentalists of Salerno Secondary School have been promoting sustainable transport in their school. They encouraged everyone in the school to get walking and cycling by organising events such as a “Bling your Bike” competition for students to creatively decorate their bikes. They also organised the opening of a new bike shelter in the school and put maps of walking and cycling routes on posters around the school.
The group incorporated renewable energy into their project by designing a bicycle wheel juicer and blender. And to make sure everyone looked as great as they felt after all this cycling, the group also held a “Beauty and the Bike” session of information and activities with The Body Shop for students!
Don’t forget to come and see the fantastic project carried out by Salerno Secondary School while it’s on display at the ECO-UNESCO Young Environmentalist Showcase and Awards in the Mansion House, Dublin. The Showcase will be open to the public from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm on May 12!
