Bringing Nature into Schools - Patrick Kirwan
For the first episode after the break, I want to introduce you to a secondary school teacher, Patrick Kirwan (thank you Codie for the recommendation!). His story is such an inspirational one that I hope you'll be as encouraged as I am by him and share this with as many students and teachers as possible! You can follow Patrick on Twitter @GrowGardeners or the Irish Schools Sustainability Network at @IrishSchSusty.

[28:05] The role the education system plays in tackling climate change.
