About the host:

The Centre is at the forefront of human-rights developments and global citizenship education both in Ireland and internationally, by hosting the EU funded Global Schools partnership and the Irish Aid funded Development and Intercultural Education project, and working with governmental and non-governmental organizations, teachers and schools, Marie Lonergan is a passionate teacher of young adults who are trying to get (back) into the education system and build a career.

About the event:

We are committed to recognizing children as citizens and supporting their engagement in the transition to a sustainable society. GCD gives children the opportunity to think about solutions to some of our most urgent global issues. Creativity, problem-solving, team work and concern for life on Earth are an integral part of education for sustainable development. GCD not only supports these skills and values but encourages children to feel connected to others around the world.

RRR: Rubble Recycling Robot

Rubble goes through a funnel and is compressed into blocks. Wind turbines channel rainwater through for pressure. Geothermal energy channels electricity to heat and compress the rubble together for building blocks.

Temperature alternating tower farm

A tower that grows plants and crops with temperature-altering technology so a diverse variety of plants can grow. Industrial companies could install them in urban areas to grow their foods there. It is both intended for homes and factories. It will be five feet tall, have a rain collector that lters water and sprays it on the plants. Solar panels and wind turbines power it.

Clean village

Villages that work with nature instead of replacing nature. The entire village is powered by solar panels, wind and water mills. The only vehicles are electric cars and boats powered by mini fans and other types of clean energy. Trees grow through the houses. All rainwater is collected and stored for growing plants. The lights in the houses only work when there are people inside.
