Student Spotlight: Kate Lynch – Comhairle na nÓg

Kate Lynch

Current 4th Year student Kate Lynch spoke this morning at the Comhairle na nÓg AGM event.

She spoke about the work of South Dublin Comhairle na nÓg which includes its influence on the Department of Environment’s Climate Action Plan, Comhairle na nÓg’s “BIN IT TO WIN IT” campaign to promote proper waste disposal in schools and their inter-agency relations with CYPSC, LCDC and the County Council.

In terms of Kate’s own work, she spoke about her involvement in the CYPSC, where she represents the Comhairle in the Economic Security and Opportunity sub-group with a focus on youth homelessness and also how she organised a Climate Action Week Event in Rathfarnham Castle Park in September, where they had an informative video (about waste disposal, part of the ‘BIN IT TO WIN IT’ campaign) that they created. This was launched by Mayor Peter Kavanagh.

Kate also wanted us to give a special mention to Jagoda Ennis, a current 6th Year at The institute and Comhairle na nÓg’s outgoing chair, for her hard work and input as well.
