Ireland's biodiversity organisation for young people
We are Ireland's biodiversity education organisation for young people. Our aim is to empower the next generation to help nature by giving them the support they need.
This is important for two reasons. Firstly, to nurture the mental and physical wellbeing of our young people through outdoor learning. Secondly, to rewild the next generation through improved eco-literacy and their involvement in hands-on nature projects.
We're about creating real, lasting impact and work with Ireland's leading businesses, charities and public bodies to deliver this. Uniquely, our campaigns cover the whole island of Ireland, north and south, and are fully inclusive across the entire education system including pre-school, primary, secondary and homeschool.
Education is our core function and we have assembled a superb team of specialists - including Ireland's first ever Biodiversity Education Officer network. Additionally, as Ireland's largest provider of outdoor learning resources we provide everything needed, from teaching kits to workshops, school gardens to outdoor classrooms. We also coordinate the Nature Hero Award, the national mark of excellence in outdoor education.
As an independent, innovative, highly effective social enterprise we work to our own remit while reinvesting our profits to rewild land across Ireland.
Our goal is to ReWild...
Nature Hero AWards
The Nature Hero Award is Ireland’s first, standalone outdoor learning award. It is a mark of excellence for a school that recognises exceptional work by students and staff to help nature. The aim of the achievement is to create an educational space that nurtures a love of nature, develops a knowledge of our biodiversity and encourages action to help it locally.
