Talking about climate change and climate action can often involve a lot of technical words, definitions and terminology. A new website and resource booklet developed by the Department of the Taoiseach with assistance from a group of young people from Comhairle na nÓg, the Environmental Protection Agency and the National Adult Literacy Agency explains common climate action terms in plain English.

The explanations are designed to help describe ideas and concepts rather than to give strict scientific definitions. Find the website here:
