Young Environmentalist People’s Choice Competition
Class Lagan have reached the final of the above competition after making a superb presentation to the judging panel last week. Their project is entitled ‘Gairdín Faoi Uisce – One Wave at a Time’.
A short summary of the project is detailed below;
“Plastic is a man-made object, it has no place in the environment, and the environment has no way of dealing with it. With this in mind, we redesigned a school garden using items that had washed up from our waterways. We upcycled items such as plastic lobster pots and fishing containers – turning them into flower beds. Our main aim is to make people consider the things that end up in our oceans, and how they can change that with their own actions”.
This competition is open to a public vote and you can vote for the Class Lagan Team by clicking on the following link;
