2nd Year student Chloe Hopkins has successfully made it through to the Regional final of the SEAI One Good Idea competition. This competition tasks primary and post primary students nationwide to develop one good idea that will help save energy in the fight to tackle and combat climate change. As part of this competition, Chloe has created a Powtoon video to showcase her energy saving idea. Chloe’s video aims to inspire others to join her in the fight to tackle climate change and understand that small actions, everyday really do make a big difference.  Every view and like will support Chloe’s climate action campaign and her progress to the next stage. We wish her the very best of luck!
