Glas

the story behind us

The word “Glas” is an Irish language name and when translated into English, simply means “Green.” Not only is it a reference to our green environment, but also instills Irish identity into it. As one of the first things thought in primary schools, the word “Glas” is instantly recognizable among school children from the age 8-12.

Building Ecological Literacy for young Ireland

T

he issue of Climate Change is an out-dated issue, where people have primarily lost interest. Glas is a brand new initiative founded by David Curtin as an attempt to stir a renewed form of attention and build “ecological literacy” among Irish school children between the ages 8 – 12. The project explores eight main areas in the environment where this literacy could be improved: Air; Climate, Environment; Waste; Economy; Land; Water; and Nature. These areas are based on statistical research conducted by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Aimed at the ease of use for both teachers and school children. Through vibrant, youthful design, David proposes to create a renewed form of awareness which moves away from “doom and gloom” mentality.

“Tomorrow’s leaders need to be outfitted for tomorrow’s difficulties ”
