All of us can take actions that have a positive impact at the local and the global level. Even the smallest steps, when taken together, make a difference.

We support all types of Sustainability Initiatives throughout Waterford and Ireland. Do you have a project or an idea that you would like to see become a reality? Let us know and if we can help, we will do what we can to support you.

Campaigns & Partnerships

One of the biggest sources of our power as individuals is our consumer power. We choose how to spend our money and if enough of us choose sustainability, corporations will respond. We can speak their language.

The Global School's programme was a fantastic opportunity to learn about sustainability and the issues that we as a society have to combat

The EU and Climate Change

This Project involved working with community groups, youth groups, corporations and students

This Project had its inaugural year in 2019 working with community groups, youth groups, corporations and students looking at the critical role that the European Union has played in the fight against climate change. These interactive workshops were held around Waterford City and County. It is amazing to see how much the people of Waterford want to help combat global warming and the willingness to make changes in their lives.

Waterford Global Schools

A peer teaching and learning programme to Transition Year Students

Waterford Global Schools just completed its 18th year providing a peer teaching and learning programme to Transition Year Students from Waterford, Tramore, Enniscorthy and Clonmel. This year’s Programme, which focused on Ethical Fashion, worked with nearly 200 TY Students and approximately 1000 Primary Students. During a week-long training event, TYs learn about and explore the Sustainable Development Goals, the impact that our actions have at both a local and global level and how to embrace active global citizenship as a way of life. We continue to be amazed by the intelligence, empathy and hard work that our Transition Year Students show us every year. The future looks bright when you look at these students.

Resources for Action

We also develop resources to help people (from schools to community settings) take positive action to help sustainability . Here are some written by staff and a few that we just think are so good, that we had to share
