Toyota's €20k seed grants
CAR manufacturers Toyota Ireland have provided €20,000 in seed grants to the ECO-UNESCO 'Clubs in Action' programme this year.
Ireland's environmental education and youth organisation provides an outlet for practical and hands-on action projects that address specific environmental issues in local areas.
This funding allows clubs to carry out a day-long or weekend activity to raise awareness about an environmental issue in their local area.
Last year the firm provided funding to 18 clubs from nine different countries. A total of 163 clubs are active in Ireland which directly involve 3,225 young people.
