Eco–Schools launch COVID appeal 6 April 2020

Eco–Schools are launching an appeal to today to #StayConnected

(via Eco–Schools NI) 

Using the best approaches in technology we believe that we can still work closely together whilst stay apart. With schools closed for the foreseeable future, Eco–Schools are determined to ensure that parents, teachers and pupils still get the most out of our programme and learn about the importance of looking after our local environment. More importantly, Eco–Schools has always played an important role in promoting the benefits for the mental health and wellbeing of people from feeling a connection with the environment.

Over the past two weeks this programme has been looking at ways in which we can remain connected with one another while we go through this period of social distancing. Through increased use of our social media channels and other online platforms we are working to promote resources that can help teachers keep an emphasis on the environment and easy to use resources for pupils to use at home.

We are proud to launch our Three Easy Tricks to keep people connected over the next few weeks. This includes promoting available webinars that are being produced within the sector for young people to take part in easy to use, fun activities at home. This includes photography, importance of environmental education and civic participation. All can be done within the comfort of your own home. In addition to this, we are encouraging the public to share their positive Eco–Schools antics with us online so we can promote the good news stories that are out there at this very difficult time.

Speaking about this new initiative the Environmental Education Manager, Charlene McKeown said;

“We are delighted to launch this campaign today to encourage people to stay more connected with each other. With schools closed, it can be hard to have enough activities in the day to keep children occupied. At Eco–Schools we are determined to help bridge the gap and ensure that we keep promoting the important values that have made such a difference in schools across Northern Ireland.

I would encourage everyone to keep an eye on our social media channels and read our fortnightly newsletter to find out all about some of the interactive environmentally friendly activities that are currently available for all of the family to enjoy. We want you to share your positive stories with our online Eco–Schools community and we will make sure to promote them and spread the positivity far and wide.”
