The Dublin Gazette is grateful to this year’s Making Dublin Greener sponsors, for sharing in our vision for a more sustainable Dublin. 

The Department of Education, led by the Minister for Education, Minister Norma Foley, is committed to sustainable development in Ireland, the department has been a huge support in the establishment of this competition.

The mission of the department is to provide high-quality education which will enable individuals to achieve their full potential and to participate fully as members of society, and contribute to Ireland’s social, cultural and economic development. 

 Dublin CARO (Climate Action Regional Offices) support and coordinate climate action undertaken by the four local authorities of South Dublin, Fingal, Dun Laoghaire‐Rathdown, Dublin City. The regional offices support local government to lead transformative change and measurable climate action across our cities and counties. The office is funded by the Department of Climate Action, Communication Networks and Transport and is hosted by Dublin City Council as the lead authority with the Region. 

SuperValu, who is part of the Musgrave Group, Ireland’s largest grocery and food distributor. With 223 stores throughout Ireland, SuperValu has served the people of Ireland for over 30 years and has become a well-established landmark across Irish communities. The reatiler is hugely committed to building thriving sustainable communities across Ireland. 

Part of a sixth-generation, 140-year-old family business that has been rooted in communities across Ireland for decades, it claims that sustainability is part of SuperValu’s DNA.

All submissions for the secondary schools sustainability competition ‘Making Dublin Greener’ are now in and it’s time for the judging to commence.

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 becoming involved with Making Dublin Greener, classes can inform their fellow students, teachers, parents and guardians on the impacts of climate change and can educate them on solutions and preventative actions. 

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

Winners will be announced at the Making Dublin Greener awards event for secondary schools, which will take place in Dublin’s Mansion House, on December 1, 2022. 

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