Mary Moynihan met with Vanessa Ogida earlier this month to discuss progress on the Creative Eco-Centre project.

Vanessa has been working with students from Nigeria, creating vision boards for the future and brainstorming ideas for what a Creative Eco-Centre should comprise of. Smashing Times are working with four schools in Ireland and four schools in Nigeria as part of the project, which uses creative processes, new digital technologies and social media activism to engage the students in the collaborative design of a Creative Eco-Centre, exploring and promoting global citizenship education and climate justice linked to human rights.

The project is funded by Concern and Irish Aid. Learn more here:
