Students from 20 schools all over Ireland have made it to the National Final of the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland’s (SEAI) One Good Idea competition after running creative energy awareness campaigns in their schools and local communities.

The One Good Idea competition, sponsored by AIB, encourages students in both primary and post primary schools to inspire and educate people to make small lifestyle changes to use energy more efficiently and help tackle climate change.

The aim of the competition is to increase students’ understanding of energy efficiency and climate change by encouraging them to take individual and collective responsibility for tackling these important issues.  Students use creative approaches to promote energy awareness and this year examples of the successful finalist projects include an energy quiz app which calculates your carbon footprint with an aim to make your home more energy efficient, as well as a clothing swap shop to promote greener fashion.

Congratulations to our top 20 finalists for this years competition listed below and best of luck in the final. See you in Dublin Castle on May 11th 2016.
