Inspire lifestyle changes to save energy and help tackle climate change. This annual SEAI schools competition now in it's 10th year is open to primary and post primary schools.

Inspire people to make a difference

We all use energy every day at home, in school, and when we travel. Could we use less energy and still meet our needs? Every year we ask primary and post primary students to come up with One Good Idea that will:

  • Save energy
  • Help tackle climate change
  • Inspire lifestyle changes in the people around them

Tell us about your One Good Idea to help save energy and tackle climate change. Then design and launch a creative awareness campaign about it in your community. Your campaign should show people in your community how your One Good Idea can make a difference to them, their pocket and our planet.
