An Taisce – Be a Climate Ambassador

Climate Ambassador Programme 2019

The Climate Ambassador programme is Ireland’s first ever initiative to train and support individuals taking action on climate change. The programme is co-ordinated by the Environmental Education Unit of An Taisce with support from the Department of Communication, Climate Action and Environment.

Climate Ambassador Programme

An Taisce is a charity that works to preserve and protect Ireland’s natural and built heritage. They are an independent voice for the environment and for heritage issues. Founded in 1948, they are one of Ireland’s oldest and largest environmental organisations. An Taisce are a member of the International National Trusts Organisation (INTO) and the European Environmental Bureau (EEB), Europe’s largest federation of environmental organisations with over 140 member organisations who gain their membership from the general public.

Effects of climate change

The effects of climate change can be felt here and now, at a local, national and global scale. Glaciers have shrunk, ice on rivers and lakes is breaking up earlier, plant and animal ranges have shifted and trees are flowering sooner. Adapting to climate change and mitigating the adverse impacts is a growing concern in every community in Ireland. Becoming a Climate Ambassador gives you the opportunity and platform to do something really positive within your community.

Applications

An Taisce’s are now inviting applications for the 2019 Environmental Education Unit’s Climate Ambassador programme. The programme is open to secondary and third level students and adult members of the community. This includes primary teachers, members of other environmental groups, business people and anyone interested in learning more and taking action on climate change. Our strength is the diversity and passion of our volunteers.

If you’d like to learn more about climate change & communications, take action, share your experiences, and meet like-minded people while taking part in worthwhile events and having some fun, why not take part! The Environmental Education Unit of An Taisce have dedicated staff who will support you throughout your journey, provide training and organise various events throughout the year for you to attend as well as sharing any of your events through variouscommunication channels.
