In a recent European poll on attitudes to climate change, nearly half of all Irish people said the Government and businesses are not doing enough to tackle it. Yet in our personal lives we still do not or will not change our behaviour to reduce our carbon footprint.
Understanding climate change is critical if we are going to do anything about it. Gavin Harte’s multimedia presentations offer a mix of photographs, video clips, games and animations with the most up-to-date information and thinking on the climate change story.
This workshop will suit anyone interested in finding out more about climate change, its implications and how we might respond to this global challenge.
Gavin Harte has been a high profile spokesperson on environmental and sustainability issues in Ireland for many years. He has worked as the national director of An Taisce and was the founder and developer of Ireland’s first eco-village in Cloughjordan, Co Tipperary. Gavin has worked as an educator, a TV presenter and carbon coach. Gavin holds a master’s degree in sustainable development and his skills in communicating sustainability issues are well recognised.
"Gavin's presentation was first class. In fact I'd say that it's probably the best climate change presentation I've seen."
- David Dodd, Scientific Officer, Climate Change Unit, Environmental Protection Agency
"I have no difficulty recommending Gavin Harte and ESD Training if your organisation is seeking a better understanding of environmental matters and how they might affect your business and the world in general."
- Conor Gouldsbury, Policy Executive, IBEC
"I can honestly say that this lecturer was one of the best I have encountered in terms of preparation, knowledge, accessibility and content. Student feedback was extremely positive."
