Students from Loreto Secondary School reached the national final of this year's Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland's (SEAI) One Good Idea.

The Loreto team were one of 20 finalists to present their campaign to a panel of judges. Their campaign was entitled 'Earth's Heroes: Fruity Duty!'

SEAI's One Good Idea Competition encourages students to create innovative and inspiring campaigns to highlight the small changes that can make a big difference to our lives, our pockets and our planet. This year, over 350 campaigns were developed by young people all over Ireland with 20 teams progressing to the national finals.

Speaking at the final, Jim Gannon, Chief Executive of the SEAI, said: 'What this programme shows is that we have some of the brightest and most creative minds in the country. The campaigns were of an exceptional standard this year and demonstrated the creativity and determination of our country's young people in contributing to a better, more sustainable future. That is what One Good Idea is all about - empowering young people and encouraging small changes that collectively make a big difference.'
