CONNECTIONS WITH IRELAND AND TAKING ACTION
Ask students to plot out together how we in Ireland can reduce our reliance on fossil fuels. Ask them to try to implement these changes in their own lives and keep a report. Discuss whether they think it is enough for individual people to make personal changes, or if change must take place at a bigger level. How do we put pressure on to make that bigger change take place?
