RTÉ Youth Assembly

On Friday 15 November, 157 young delegates from all over the republic of Ireland will convene the first ever Youth Assembly on Climate at Dáil Éireann to discuss and determine their proposals for next steps for Ireland on Climate Action.

How to get involved:

  1. Watch the live broadcast from RTÉ 2, News Now & Oireachtas TV between 10am to 10.30am and 1.45pm to 2.30pm on Friday 15 November.

  2. See who is representing your county by reading about the Youth Assembly Delegates.
  3. Vote to register support for the Proclamation on Climate from 2:30pm on the 15 November.

RTÉ also has a week-long focus on climate change to coincide with Science Week from 11 to 15 November. RTÉ On Climate will see brand-new content across TV, radio and online, including dedicated news features offering an Irish perspective on the global crisis - and practical ways in which we can all make a difference. Teachers and students should keep an eye on Scoilnet's EdTV page for RTÉ On Climate programmes which will be on TV next week. Scoilnet will list the educational programmes and provide some classroom activities to go alongside the programmes.

Dee Forbes, Director General, RTÉ said: "The world is rising to the burning issue of climate change, and here in Ireland our young people have been especially moved by the climate crisis.

This special week reflects the growing concern, globally and here at home, and offers a whole range of content that not only analyses where we are and how we got here, but looks at what we can do.

Ultimately, our own individual actions will define how we as a community respond on this issue. RTÉ On Climate is our contribution to framing, explaining and, ultimately, moving us all one step closer to solving the problem." will feature articles, tips and hacks throughout the week.
