Science Week 2019 is the perfect opportunity to find out more about what climate change means and how science can help us understand the facts behind climate action and the solutions for it.

The Kerry Science Festival’s aim is to bring science and climate action to the fore of the public’s minds through fun, engaging and interactive events.

As part of Science Week, Science Foundation Ireland, in association with Coillte, is supporting the national effort to plant 440 million trees by 2040.

Coillte have kindly provided 30,000 trees to Science Foundation Ireland to be planted during Science Week.

In conjunction with the Tree Council of Ireland and Easy Treesie, there will be tree planting events taking place across Kerry where you can find out what trees do for our environment, which trees suit the Irish ecosystem the best and how you can plant your own trees at home.

Trees are essential to our ecosystem, as they reduce carbon and release oxygen into the atmosphere and as the Trillion Trees initiative drives the global movement behind tree planting forward, Science Week wants you to get involved and make a difference in Ireland.
