The Midleton College Climate Action Plenary
Article Uploaded : 22/10/2019 by Midleton College

The Midleton College Climate Action Plenary took place today. Our new Climate Action Plan has resulted in each department of the College (from catering and chaplaincy, to each individual subject department) identifying one goal in the area of Education, Buildings, Waste, Grow Your Own, or Energy. We heard presentations from some departments, such as Horticulture and Green Schools, as well as from parents on the Parent Teacher Association. All have explained the steps they hope to take in order to achieve their goal in 2020. We also heard inspiring talks from local experts in the field of sustainable development. Mark Kennedy from Janssen Pharmaceutical, Ben Huskinson from Simply Blue Energy, as well as local expert in the field of Energy, Michael Quirk, all informed us on areas of Climate Action. It was great to see a whole school approach of this scale, in tackling an issue that many of our students have been actively voicing in recent years. We look forward to reviewing our plan in Spring 2020.. (more pics in gallery)
