Join the Friday’s for Future movement with Schools Climate Action Network.

5.

Fancy a challenge? Join the Sick of Plastic campaign or give zero waste living a go! 

6.

Want to fight for LGBTQI issues, feminism and environment at the same time? Check out the Dublin Eco Feminists on Facebook!

7.

Write to your TD about climate change.

8.
