Firstly we studied our countries and found out where they were in relation to Ireland. Then we found out what kind of climate those countries had. We followed the clocks on the board and acted out the daily lives of children from all five countries. We were shocked to discover that the child from Ghana did not have enough water at the end of the day. This challenge has made us all more aware of the difficulties children from other countries face. It has made us all far more determined to save our precious water.
From modest beginnings in 1995, Global Action Plan Ireland have grown into a mature, national organisation that empowers as many communities as possible to adopt a greener lifestyle and thereby play their role in protecting planet Earth.
