Eco–Schools Teachers Conference 25 February 2019

Eco–Schools Teachers Conference 21st March 2019, W5, Belfast – registration now open!

Eco–Schools are delighted to announce that registration is open for their third annual Teachers Conference. This is a landmark year for Eco–Schools as they celebrate their 25th Anniversary. The theme for this year’s

conference is ‘Plastic and the Marine Environment’ and will see the launch of a brand new Eco–Schools Marine topic.

80% of the plastic in the ocean originates from the land so the Marine topic will look not only at our oceans and what a valuable resource they are to us, but also at what happens upstream and how our actions impact this vital environment from source to sea.

The conference will be held in the inspiring setting of W5 in Belfast’s Titanic Quarter. Speakers include: Lizzie Daly, wildlife explorer and TV presenter, who will tell us of her ocean adventures around the world and the disastrous results she has seen from plastic pollution; and Sylvie Verinder from the Plastic Oceans team on the impact the film ‘A Plastic Ocean’ has had and introducing new teaching resources associated with it.

The event will also celebrate new Ambassador Eco–Schools, hear from inspiring young people and announce the Eco–Teacher of the Year award. A superb selection of workshops will be available on the day provided by Lizzie Daly, Sylvie Verinder, RSPB, Field Studies Council, Eco–Schools, Ulster Wildlife and Into Film. There will also be exhibit stands to browse while enjoying lunch.

Information for registration can be found on the Eco-Schools website. Places are limited so don’t delay!
