Roscommon students invited to enter new Climate Action and Energy Award

Second-level schools in Roscommon are invited to take innovative action in response to the climate emergency through a new Climate Action and Energy Award, in association with Young Social Innovators and EirGrid.

  EirGrid, the national electricity grid operator, has launched a partnership with non-profit organisation, Young Social Innovators (YSI). The collaboration will see EirGrid become the new Climate Action and Energy partner with non-profit organisation, Young Social Innovators (YSI) for a three-year period.

  Young Social Innovators empowers and supports young people to develop and implement innovative ideas to bring about positive social change for the benefit of people, communities and the environment. Over the past twenty years, some 145,000 teenagers have taken part in YSI’s social innovation programmes in post primary schools nationally.

  EirGrid will become YSI’s Challenge Partner under its Environment Pillar. Along with this, a ‘Climate Action and Energy’ award will be created for current participants in the Young Social Innovators of the Year Ireland Awards 2022.

  Schools can register their interest in getting involved now by emailing educate@youngsocialinnovators.ie. To find out how EirGrid is delivering a cleaner energy future, visit eirgrid.ie. To get more information about the important work YSI do, visit youngsocialinnovators.ie.
