Young Ocean Transformers needed to inspire change!

Inspiring You has joined forces with Salthill Village and Steeltech Garden Sheds to help raise awareness about plastics pollution in our seas and with your help – end it.

Save our Seas” from plastic pollution

We are asking primary and secondary school students across Ireland to enter our Ocean Transformers competition. All you have to do is write a short message or design a poster encouraging people to take action and “Save our Seas” from plastic pollution.

Use social media less

Inspiring You are a group of Galway based friends who work in education and media.  Their aim is to  try and encourage young people to engage in more real life activities and use social media less.

Dream of a better future

Galway has long been a leader in tourism, arts and culture. The team at Salthill Village were very enthusiastic to help inspire young people to dream of a better future for our environment.

Leading musician and marine biologist

One of Ireland’s leading musicians and passionate environmentalist Sharon Shannon and Marine biologist Catherine Jordan have been part of this project with “Inspiring You” since its inception.

Our very own “Galway Girl”

Salthill is known for its beauty, scenery and famous prom – we want to keep it that way. The mid- point on The Wild Atlantic Way is one of Ireland’s leading tourist destinations and has been immortalised in song by Bing Crosby’s version ofGalway Bay and more recently by our very own, “Galway Girl”, Sharon Shannon.

Optimus Prime encouraging young minds

The “Transformer” movie franchise is one of the highest grossing in history.  One of Ireland’s leading businesses, Steeltech Garden Sheds, were delighted to lend us, “Optimus Prime” and “BumbleBee” to help encourage young minds to become “Ocean Transformers”.

Message to the World

Optimus Prime is known for his “Message to the World” so we are excited to see what the students of Ireland’s , “Message to the World” will be through art and writing.
