Rewrite has partnered with Calor Ireland to sponsor the rollout of the Rewrite climate education programme local community schools, including Drimnagh Castle Secondary School, writes Rachel Cunningham.

A total of 40 transition year students enrolled in the 11-week programme to learn about the carbon cycle, climate change, climate action and energy, while also examining the impact of climate change on industry such as fashion, forestry and food.

The education arm of global decarbonisation firm CoolPlanet, Rewrite launched in April 2021 and has already worked with nearly 160 post primary schools and more than 13,000 students. 

One of Rewrite’s core philosophies is to infuse optimism and positivity into the understanding of climate change.

“We can’t change what’s been done in the past, but we can reimagine the future,” said Sonya Murray, Rewrite Schools Coordinator.

“By empowering teenagers to grasp their carbon footprint and explore climate solutions and innovations, Rewrite equips them with the tools and inspiration to usher in a brighter, more sustainable future.”
