Meet the team!
Hello! We are a group of young people from the Comhairle na nÓg. Comhairle na nÓg gives children and young people, like us, the chance to be involved in the development of local services and policies. We are delighted to have been involved in this project from the start. We helped choose the terms that needed to be explained, and worked with the Department of the Taoiseach to make sure the explanations were understandable. We also inputted into the design of this website. We hope you enjoy using it as much as we enjoyed helping with it!
The Environmental Protection Agency helped the Department of the Taoiseach ensure that the explanations were scientifically accurate.
The National Adult Literacy Agency worked with the Department of the Taoiseach to ensure that the website and terms were written and presented in plain English. Both the website and terms have been awarded the NALA Plain English Mark.
