187

Young people in Tipperary are being encouraged to register their action project in the ECO-UNESCO’s Young Environmental Awards.
There’s a number of categories including climate change, biodiversity, water, energy, transport, marine-life, and waste.
Each project entered is required to show that young people have taken action that protects the environment in some way while also raising awareness in the community.
The competition welcomes entries from young people aged 10-18-years across Ireland, in primary and secondary schools, youth groups, community groups and Youthreach Centres.
The Awards recognise young people who are raising awareness and implementing solutions to environmental issues in their community in the form of a new or already established project.
Now in its 25th year, over 60,000 young people have participated in the initiative since it began.
People can registiser their project until next Wednesday, 20th December.
Groups are required to submit their information to express their interest in being involved. Details of the ‘action project’ are not required at this stage of the competition. Further information can be accessed here.
