One Good Idea

The Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) has launched this year’s One Good Idea competition and is encouraging students from right across the country to enter.

Now in its 9th year, the aim of the One Good Idea is to increase students’ understanding of energy efficiency and climate change by encouraging them to take individual and collective responsibility for tackling these important issues. Contestants must come up with creative ideas for an energy awareness campaign to change behaviour and improve energy efficiency in their homes, schools and communities.  

Open to primary and post primary school students, participants have the chance to win prizes for themselves and their schools.  Entry can be made via and the best projects will be showcased at the national finals in Croke Park on the 16th May 2017. Closing date for entries is 11th November 2016.  

To mark the launch, the 2016 winners have created posters based on their campaigns.  The posters will be used in a national advertising campaign on billboards and in AIB branches around the country.  A public vote for the nation’s favourite poster will be conducted through the SEAI website until 23rd October 2016.
