The ECO-UNESCO’s Young Environmentalist Awards Display the Top Environmental Projects in Ireland and Northern Ireland

From Climate Change to guerrilla gardening, bird watching to engineering solar powered iPod chargers—and everything in between—it’s all covered by this year’s talented batch of Young Environmentalists.

Over 500 young people are expected to attend the 10th anniversary of ECO-UNESCO’s Young Environmentalist Awards. The free showcase will highlight the 50 shortlisted projects from young people all across Ireland and Northern Ireland honoured for their outstanding environmental action projects.

“We are extremely proud to bring all of these young environmentalists to Dublin. This year’s projects were exceptional in their quality and creativity,” said Elaine Nevin, National Director of ECO-UNESCO. “Each year I am impressed by the actions that young people choose to take to protect the environment and am pleased that we could invite a record amount of groups to the 10th anniversary showcase.”

The Lord Mayor of Dublin Eibhlin Byrne will officially launch ECO-UNESCO’s Young Environmentalist Awards Showcase on 20 May in the Round Room of Dublin’s Mansion House, open to the public from 11:30-3:30.

“The future belongs to young people. This talented, bright generation have the world in the palm of their hands and I am delighted to see them paying such attention to protecting and valuing that world”, said the Lord Mayor.

There will be many exciting green-themed activities, including a special BioZone in honour of Biodiversity Week where young people with little green fingers can get tips on how to start their own gardening projects on a shoestring.
After the day’s festivities, ECO-UNESCO will present awards for the top projects in a ceremony hosted by RTE’s Aidan Power with a special address by Barry Andrews, TD, Minister for Children and Youth Affairs.

“It is great to be part of the 10th anniversary of ECO-UNESCO’s Young Environmentalist Awards,” commented Aidan Power. “I have been involved with the celebrations for a few years now and I always enjoy meeting the great young people with cool environmental projects.”

This year marks the 10th anniversary of ECO-UNESCO’s Young Environmentalist Awards. In the past decade, thousands of young people aged 12-18 have participated in the programme by developing environmental projects in their own community. The 2009 Young Environmentalist Awards finalists include young people from schools and youth groups in Antrim, Armagh, Carlow, Clare, Cork, Donegal, Dublin, Down, Fermanagh, Galway, Kerry, Limerick, Mayo, Roscommon, Sligo, Waterford, Westmeath and Wicklow.
