Maynooth Green Campus will be assessed by a panel of experts assembled by Green Campus Ireland for their second Green Flag.
The Green-Campus Programme is an evolution of Green-Schools (known internationally as Eco-Schools) which is a programme developed by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE). Stakeholder driven, bottom up approaches to environmental management as facilitated by Green-Campus has delivered benefits to the environment, campus management, students and learning & to local & wider communities.
The Maynooth Green Campus committee has been a vigorous agent for bottom-up & top-down change on the environment, with cross-campus representation, and widespread buy-in by staff and students in a broad range of actions that link local sustainability work and best practice on campus with national & international leadership on sustainability & climate justice issues. The campus has invested in championing & embedding the SDGs into pedagogy on site. A new working group on Health & Wellbeing established in 2021 links to SDG 3 to allow more focused attention on monitoring of the health of all campus residents, the wider wellbeing dimensions of public health, health promotion & education including the development of campus-wide assets to promote health & well-being.
