Fantastic resources: climate SOS book & new EU channel for primary school children

Sustainable Energy Authority Of Ireland (SEAI) launches new book

Climate SOS is a non-fiction, illustrated story book that promotes an awareness of climate change in a way that relates to the lives and day-to-day experiences of children. The heroes in the book are 4 children and their dog, who call themselves “Super Energy Activists of Ireland”.

The book emphasises the importance of people power and the value of green, sustainable energy in our transition to a more sustainable society. It’s aimed at children in senior classes of primary school and is available to all schools as a hard copy and e-book

Schools can also borrow class sets from their local libraries.  The book was developed by Dr Orla Kelly, DCU St Patrick’s Campus, written by Lucinda Jacob and illustrated by Alan Nolan.
