A workshop at the Global Wind Awards

Eco-Schools across Northern Ireland celebrate success at the inaugural Airtricity and Eco-Schools Global Wind Awards. Awards were presented to the ‘Eco-Committee of the Year’ and ‘Operation Energy Project of the Year’ with winners also receiving EcoStyle educational Renewable Energy Kits for the school.

The Airtricity and Eco-Schools Global Wind Awards, which took place in Londonderry on the 20th June, proved to be an impressive showcase of Eco-Schools achievements by primary and secondary school students across Northern Ireland in 2013. The event was the centrepiece of Global Wind Week, the annual celebration of wind energy, its power and the possibilities it holds to change our world. During the week from 17th-21st June Eco-Schools throughout the province demonstrated their enthusiasm for learning more about energy by getting involved in Airtricity’s Operation Energy Schools Programme.

The Airtricity and Eco-Schools Global Wind Awards event was designed to advance our young people’s understanding of energy use and sustainability and to inspire them to be curious about future energy challenges. In addition to the Awards presentation an energy forum Q&A provided pupils with the opportunity to pitch their energy related questions to a panel of leading industry representatives. Pupils proudly presented on their study of energy efficiency and renewable energy and an exhibition space focused on the energy topic. The event culminated in a trip up to Airtricity’s Slieve Kirk Wind Farm, where pupils were led on a guided tour of a wind turbine by SSE Ireland staff.
