Given that it was a school pupil (Greta Thunberg) who famously called-out World Leaders on the exploitation of our planet, it was always likely that school pupils would be at the forefront of protests in Ireland and across the world. As a Green School, CCS has been doing its bit to encourage pupils to treat the environment with respect, and the pupils have in turn demonstrated their determination to take action. The removal of paper cups from the school is the latest initiative in an ongoing effort to make the concept of environmental conservation as routine as eating lunch. Street protests are a call to action. The real statement of intent is what you do every day.
