We return for the second episode and this time food and farming are on the agenda. We found projects on our attitudes to eating insects, the carbon impact of trawling and more. Plus Evie was joined in studio by by students who have a vested interest in agriculture, living and working on farms with their families.
Evie heads to the RDS to meet the young competitors in the 2023 BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition. Almost half of the projects dealt with clever solutions to the climate crisis. Too much to cover in one episode so part 2 coming next week.
Ecolution draws to a close for the season, but not without recognizing all those we’ve met and worked with this year.
Today we speak with George Monbiot, who’s new book Regenesis: Feeding the World without Devouring the Planet is all about the soil beneath our feet. Plus we discuss what it means to grow things with students from Gaelscoil Coláiste Mhuire.
We posed some tricky questions to four scientists about the climate crisis and the place of scientific research in explaining the issues, while also coming up with solutions to mitigate Global temperature rise. With Phil and Julie from “Let’s Dive In”, Dr Shane McGuinness and Dr Niamh Shaw.
For the 2nd year in a row, the Schools Climate and nature Summit offers all children in Primary and Secondary an opportunity to make friends and start climate awareness and action. It takes place in tandem with COP27. We met some of the children and teachers taking part.
October saw the coming together of Irelands’ first ever Children and Young People’s Assembly on Biodiversity Loss, and Ecolution was lucky enough to follow their journey. We meet some of the children selected, their mentors and TD Malcolm Noonan.
Birds are one of the most visible, and audible members of the biosphere that surround us. But they are in serious trouble. We spoke to Niamh Fitzgerald of Birdwatch Ireland, Birders in Kilkenny and kids across the country to see why they’re in decline and ask what we can do to help.
When Chloe is sent off to live with her mysterious and eccentric grandmother she learns an unbelievable secret. Grandma Ivy is none other than Mother Nature herself! And Chloe is next in line to assume to the power and responsibility of the job. Can a twelve-year old learn to balance the entire world’s ecosystem while just trying to fit in at her new school? Only Mother Nature knows.
