Project Description

Case Studies on Committees

ATU Connemara Green-Campus Committee have a representative who sits on both the local Tidy Towns group and the GMIT Letterfrack Green-Campus Committee. This ensures that strong connections are maintained between the college and the local community. The two groups regularly host joint events such as Home Composting evenings and local litter picks and both groups work to support each other’s efforts.

Ballsbridge College of Further Education: Membership and active participation on the Green-Campus committee has for a large proportion of students become part of their required course work in Ballsbridge CFE. Students studying ‘Teaching English as a Foreign Language’ examine a module called Business Management and a requirement of this module is to implement and monitor a change in their workplace. These students each year form the key group of the Green-Campus committee and are assessed on the work done on implementing the Green-Charter and the developments of the Green-Campus programme for the academic year. This active involvement from students where there is a link to performance and assessment has proven quite successful in the CFE environment where students often attend for courses lasting for one year only.
