Environment And Sustainability Project: The Irish Landscape

The aim of this project is for students to explore the living landscape of Ireland’s towns, cities and countryside and the impact that people have on it.


The Irish landscape has been formed equally by natural forces and the inhabitants who first arrived to fish the coastline many millennia ago. These inhabitants have been farming the Island for at least 200 generations and first learned to exchange the products of the earth along Viking sea routes over 1000 years ago. Students learn to read the story of change that the landscape tells both ancient and modern. They express their understanding by creating an interactive map of the landscapes they have visited with audio visual descriptions and explanations of what they see needs to be preserved, why and how.

Learner Profile

Second- level or vocational students who have an interest in discovering Ireland’s natural resources and the importance of the conservation and protection of global ecosystems at home and across Europe to support health and wellbeing, now and in the future.

Learner Outcomes

By the end of this course students will have

  • Examined the story that landscapes can tell us about the forces that formed them
  • Analysed how mining, forestry, agriculture, imported plants and animals, and building have shaped the views we see today
  • Proposed the things that we should preserve in nature reserves, areas of conservation / biodiversity, heritage sites and protected buildings
  • Created audio visual explanations of their point and embedded them in an interactive map
