STE(A)M in Junior Cycle 2020- Is the Future of Urbanisation Green?

STE(A)M in Junior Cycle

Is the Future of Urbanisation Green?  

Urbanisation is an inevitable trend. Increasing urbanisation is causing a range of problems. Growth of towns and cities often results in increasing pollution, high demand for energy, lack of resources, destruction of habitats, and social inequality. During these workshops we will examine energy consumption in our buildings and planning for our towns of the future, taking consideration of Geology, using GSI maps, data and statistics. Is it possible to find our way out of the urban development versus environmental degradation dilemma? “In urbanisation, you think big because you are thinking decades ahead.” (Kushal Pal Singh)

Partners: SEAI (Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland), iCRAG (Irish Centre for research in Applied Geoscience) and GSI (Geological Survey Ireland)

Solution Generation

“The future of the world is in my classroom today - a future with the potential for good or bad”

(Ivan Welton Fitzwater)

The world is changing at a rapid pace. In order to respond to the emerging challenges of our future, we need to empower our young people to think, choose and innovate in ways that will enhance and sustain our lives, communities and world, now and into the unknown tomorrow. It is on this premise that the theme for STE(A)M in Junior Cycle 2020 - "SOLUTION GENERATION" is based.
