Hello all,

I hope the summer is treating you well. Great news!!! Do you want to go green and have the chance to win €5000 at the same time? RTE spotted Therese Keating and Caitlin Lambert Dunne’s success in the Generation Apprenticeship competition in the Irish Times. They contacted me to see if any of our families would like to take part in the next series of What Planet Are You On?, recognising our commitment to promoting Green Schools, Development Education and environmental issues generally. I have attached the communication from RTE below.

What Planet Are You On? presented by Maia Dunphy will return to RTÉ One television later this year. 

Does your shower run a little longer than it should?  Does the green bin give you a headache? Is the electric kettle always on boil?  Is the family car never off the road? Then we want to hear from you!

We are looking for 4 households from across the country to take on the challenge of doing their bit for climate change.  This is a great opportunity to learn they by making small changes the entire household can have a positive impact on Planet Earth.

Over the course of four weeks, with the support and help of the What Planet Are You On? experts each household will learn where they are going wrong by taking on the challenges to make improvements inside and outside of their home in the areas of water, waste, energy and food.

With €5,000 up for grabs for the most improved household – could your household take on the challenge?
