Education Programme Executive

Aoife Cannon is an Education Programme Executive at SEAI, which involves the management of SEAI's education programme.

Aoife is currently studying a Masters in Outdoor Environmental and Sustainability Education at the University of Edinburgh, as a mature student, after being stuck indoors working through Covid.

Aoife is happiest in the outdoors with others – cycling, kayaking, swimming, roller blading, hiking or just enjoying nature. 

In 2019, alongside her neighbours in the community suburb of Baldoyle in County Dublin, Aoife set up a community group, “Baldoyle Wild Town”.  Although formally known as Baldoyle Tidy Towns, Aoife and the community group felt this didn’t reflect their work, which focused more on re-wilding and climate action.  Baldoyle Wild Town are the proud recipients of the Tidy Towns Tree Award in 2022 for planting a tree for every resident in Baldoyle (over 6,000 trees!) and the Climate Action Award in 2023, for their seagrass restoration project in Baldoyle estuary.
