One thing that binds us all together is our planet, and it would seem surprising if teachers around the country wouldn't be worried about the impending climate crisis. I was thrilled to be joined by Mary Moore and Laura Ní Mhaille from the Irish Schools Sustainability Network to discuss how teachers can help.

We got through a huge amount from Green Flags to whether Climate Action should be a curriculum subject and everything in between. It was a great chat and I learned loads!
