Founder Sue Adams will deliver a webinar for teachers of both primary and post primary schools that will provide teachers with ideas on how to embed and deliver environmental education into the curriculum and as a specialized 8 week climate literacy subject. Sue has worked with schools to create sustainability policies for Principals and she has delivered award winning action projects with students.

Sue Adams founded Education for Sustainability in 2017 as a reflection of the emerging decline of the natural world. It is her mission to ensure that the young people of today are educated about the climate crisis and that they have the knowledge, skills and tools to take action so they can be informed and empowered stakeholders for the future.
With a background working and studying at Dublin Zoo, she was inspired to create interactive environmental programmes for schools that focus on improving climate literacy and fostering behavioural change through community action programmes. She won the Young Environmentalist Awards Eco Leader of the year in 2017 for her work with primary and secondary schools which lead on to her work with 44 schools supporting them to become a single-use plastic free campus. Education for Sustainability executes a variety of educational programmes such as workshops, teacher training and a transition year Sustainable Development 8 - week module. She is passionate about empowering young people to be the change that they want to see in the world through education.
