Mr.Donal Enright.

Team Members
Shane Keegan.

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

I focused on this challenge because it is important for other people to know about the damage that climate change is doing to our planet and how it can be prevented so I created a project showing what climate change is doing to our planet.

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

I didn’t know how badly some countries experience the effects of climate change including drought which is a lack of water.

What have you learnt about your Hero?

My hero is Beth Doherty,she is an Irish climate activist.I have learnt that she is trying to get global warming and climate change reduced.

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

I would improve people’s attention relating to climate change by highlighting the consequences and affects of climate change in a detailed way to try and catch people’s attention a bit better.

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

My idea would be to try and encourage more people to buy self driving cars and reduce their carbon footprint a bit more and walk and cycle a lot more than drive but this also depends on where people are living whether it is rural or urban areas.

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

Do you think that My Big Idea project is reliable relating to climate change?
