Cool Planet Experience Enniskerry

Cool Planet Experience Enniskerry
6th Class
Monday, April 1, 2019 (All day)

6th Class were delighted to attend the Cool Planet Experience in Powerscourt Estate, Enniskerry yesterday.

The day began with each girl receiving an electronic armband to record her carbon footprint. Each of us participated in a computerised questionnaire to calculate this result. Needless to say, some of us were quite shocked with the outcome. However we learned that by cutting back on meat, spending less time in the shower, not leaving electrical items on standby mode and turning off lights, we can make a difference.

We then went to a fabulous high tech room where we watched footage of how the world will be in 2050 if we all don’t make changes. We took part in an interactive quiz in the ‘Hope Room’ and took part in a virtual TV game show.

We became ‘agents for change’ and made pledges of what we would do to reduce our carbon footprint. We were allowed to keep our personal wrist bands to use at home by logging into the Cool Planet website to monitor our progress.

This will be an ongoing project for us and we will report back with our results at a later date!
After all change starts with one person at a time...
