Last year saw Ireland’s first ever Children and Young People’s Assembly on Biodiversity loss come together. Designed with children and young people, the Assembly connected 35 randomly selected Members aged 7-17 from across Ireland to explore, discuss and create calls to action on how to protect and restore biodiversity in Ireland. We were lucky enough to do an episode all about it and we even got to visit the first weekend they held in Wicklow.

The culmination of those two weekends was the agreement on 58 recommendations made by attendees. They were generated by the whole assembly together. These have now been turned into educational resources which you can find here.
