The Environmental Protection Agency is at the front line of environmental protection and policing in Ireland
The EPA ensure that Ireland’s environment is protected, and monitor changes in environmental trends to detect early warning signs of neglect or deterioration.
As part of this, the EPA are involved in a wide range of environmental research programmes and provide environmental educational materials for students and teachers. The Environmental Protection Agency’s education programmes are designed primarily for young people, for whom the environment is both an inheritance right and a future challenge and their initiatives aim to encourage thought, debate and action.
The EPA have a a wide range of useful resources for both primary and secondary schools and provide supports as well as items which link into the national curriculum and other organisations such as an Taisce. Teachers can make use of the resources to further support environmental education in their schools. The EPA also provide a specific section on Climate change, biodiversity, etc. at https://www.epa.ie/researchandeducation/education/educ – which could be used to access additional resources directly related to specific levels and learning areas in the Penjii game.
