Sustainable Skerries has started running a series of workshops with the Skerries Community College transition Year students.

Subjects we are examining are Peak Oil, Food, Water, Transport and Resilience. We will discuss what Skerries is going to look like in 20 years. To quote Chris Martensson, “one thing we know for sure is the next 20 years will be nothing like the last 20 years”. So we will examine what Skerries will be like in terms of food, water, transport, ESB, how we heat out homes and what will our healthcare system look like. Finally, what can we do to make our town more resilient, better able to withstand external shocks.

The TY Students will be entering the ECO-UNESCO competition with the sustainability and resilience as a major subject area.
