The B!G Idea Dashboard > Team > Green team – St Patricks Comprehensive School Shannon

Why as a team did you choose to focus on this challenge?

because I thought it was interesting and I wanted to learn more of this and to understand things to be some most destructive impacts on climate changes, some and try to get more try to get more attention of youthold peoples

What do you know now about the challenge that you didn't know before?

Climate change is not just about temperature increase - It also affects other aspects of the environment, such as precipitation patterns, sea levels, and ocean acidification. Human activities are the primary cause of climate change - The emission of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide, methane, The Paris Agreement is a global effort to combat climate change - The Paris Agreement, signed by nearly 200 countries, aims to keep the global temperature increase below 2 degrees Celsius and pursue efforts to limit it to 1.5 degrees.

What have you learnt about your Hero?

Greta Thunberg - A Swedish environmental activist who gained international recognition for her advocacy on climate change, and has inspired youth movements across the world.

If you could improve one thing for your Hero what would that be?

would tell more about climate change and try to get more attention of youth people

Do you have any ideas for a potential solution? No matter how raw, share them with your Mentors for feedback.

1. Reducing greenhouse gas emissions: This can be achieved through the adoption of clean and renewable energy sources, such as wind, solar, and hydropower, as well as energy-efficient technologies and practices. 2. Transition to low-carbon transportation: This involves promoting the use of electric vehicles, public transportation, and alternative modes of transportation that emit less carbon. 3. Reforestation and land use change: Trees absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, so planting new trees and restoring degraded lands can help remove carbon from the atmosphere and slow down climate change.

Ask your Mentor anything …. This is a chance to ask your Mentors a direct question relating to your Big Idea.

1. what is the main cause of climate change? my mentor answered this { the burning of fossils fuels} 2. how does climate change affect the earth's ecosystem? {the polar ice caps melting is killing native to Antarctica.} is climate change affecting sea level and coastal communities {the ice caps melting is causing sea level to rise which is results in mass flooding
