Dublin Gazette is giving secondary school students a final chance to submit their Making Dublin Greener sustainability projects, with an extended deadline of Thursday, November 10. 

Dublin is facing many challenges resulting from climate change, from air pollution to extreme weather events, such as flooding. It grows clearer each day that if we are to lessen harmful impacts on the environment, the time to implement mitigation and adaptation strategies is now. 

By getting involved in Making Dublin Greener, which is sponsored by the Department of Education and CARO, classes can inform their fellow students, teachers, parents and guardians about the im-pact of climate change, in addition to the preventative actions that their communities can undertake. 

Making Dublin Greener means making Dublin a healthier, more environmentally-friendly and de-sirable place in which to live and work. 

Each project summary must be between 300-700 words, with a maximum of six drawings, photos or illustrations to accompany the description. Video entries under three minutes will also be accepted. 

Winners will be announced at the Making Dublin Greener secondary schools awards event, which will take place in Dublin’s Mansion House, on December 1. 

Category winners will receive a prize of €2,000, while a prize of €1,000 will be awarded to the spe-cial merit winner.
