first_imgNewsMinister Ryan announces “substantial increase” of 70% in funding for environmental NGOsBy Sarah Carr – February 23, 2021 85 Email Photo by bardia Hashemirad on Unsplash THE Minister for the Environment, Eamon Ryan, has announced that funding for environmental NGOs will see a 70% increase of €704,000 on the 2020 budget. The Irish Environmental Network (IEN) is to receive a total of €1,764,000 to support their “critical work” in Ireland’s fight against climate change.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “I have worked closely with the IEN members for many years and I have met them on a number of occasions since I became Minister. “I am very aware of the financial challenges the sector has faced over the last number of years and how the Covid 19 pandemic has impacted on these organisations. Their role in how we address the climate and biodiversity challenges we face has never been more crucial.” Minister Ryan explained. This substantial increase in supports to the @IrishEnvNet couldn’t be more timely. They play a crucial role in the fight against climate change. I’ve worked with the IEN members for many years & will continue to listen, learn, & collaborate with our eNGOs in my role as Minister. pic.twitter.com/gF3yteBCQ3— Eamon Ryan (@EamonRyan) January 21, 2021The Irish Environmental Network, established in 2002, is composed of over 30 environmental NGOs and over 35,000 volunteers whose aim is to support “the principles of environmental, social and economic sustainability”. Amongst its members are the likes of BirdWatch Ireland, Irish Seed Savers Association and Irish Wildlife Trust.The IEN operates in a national and international capacity. The funding it receives through Local Government and Community helps to support the implementation of environmental policies on a national and multinational scale. The network also provides its members with training in areas such as communication, fundraising and governance helping its member organisations to expand their reach.“I am very aware of the critical work carried out by the member organisations of the Irish Environmental Network (IEN). These national environmental NGOs are active on a broad range of environmental issues, including wildlife conservation, biodiversity and climate change.“Therefore I am pleased to be able to deliver this substantial increase in their financial supports so that they can continue to build on their great work.

Sharing the small stuff

first_imgInteractivity will be the focus of the fifth annual Harvard Initiative for Learning and Teaching (HILT) conference as faculty, instructors, and academic professionals from all parts of the University gather to discuss best practices, as well as theory and experience, in both learning and teaching.“When you are in a conversation, when you have to respond, then you are thinking,” said Peter Bol, vice provost for advances in learning at Harvard, who will offer introductory remarks at the conference’s final session. “Interactivity is about being engaged in learning and responding at the same time.”The topic for the conference, which runs from 8:45 a.m. to 1:45 p.m. on Friday at Wasserstein Hall, was developed in the spring as HILT reached out to faculty over a series of lunch and dinner meetings for input about their educational challenges and trajectories.“We were stunned by the number of responses,” said Erin Driver-Linn, director of HILT and associate provost of institutional research, noting that more than 500 answered the initial query, and more than 120 attended one of the small-group discussions. The theme of interactivity came out of those conversations, she said. What also emerged were very practicable ideas.“What are the nudges, something simple I can do in my classes?” recalled Driver-Linn. “What are some bite-sized innovations?”The conference, which typically draws 300-500 Harvard community members, promotes a University-level dialogue across campuses, allowing participants to share experiences and experimental approaches and strengthen networks. It will kick off with a panel discussion, to be followed by breakout sessions. The concluding panel will focus on increasing opportunities to improve teaching and learning at Harvard.Physics Professor Matt Schwartz will lead one of the breakout sessions, in which faculty members share their own small-scale teaching innovations. He’s most concerned with quick, easily applicable fixes. “Stuff that doesn’t take rewriting your whole course,” he said. The examples he cited are indeed small, but they can have major repercussions.“Someone suggested they always have music playing when people enter their classroom,” he said. “Then they turn it off, and it automatically gets people’s attention.”From his own experience, Schwartz has learned to “ask students before class what they want me to talk about.” This encourages them to think about the course work and do the reading before each class, he said.Another goal of Schwartz’s session will be to explore how best to communicate such small-scale ideas, so that faculty can share them. “What I find most useful is people telling me what they have gotten from their own practice, their own trial and error in the classroom,” he said.Carolyn Wood, director of the Strengthening Learning and Teaching Excellence and the Case Program at Harvard Kennedy School, will lead a session on teaching with case studies. “We kind of have a moment now,” said Wood. “Faculty are very engaged in finding new ways to reach their learners, and case studies are great way to teach.”Although case studies are common in some fields, such as at Harvard Business School, Wood will ask her participants to explore how other disciplines can make use of it — even on a small scale.“We’ve found we need to make it easy to get started,” she said. “Once faculty try it, they find that students are more engaged, that students do remember not only the learning sessions but also the learning goals. And for faculty it’s challenging and fun.”While Wood is focusing on case studies, her overall perspective captures the initiative of the conference. While she expects some experimentation and “a little trial and error,” the goal remains the same.“Teaching well requires continuous improvement,” she said.last_img read more

Modric tipped to pip French stars to Ballon d’Or and end Ronaldo and Messi era

first_imgParis, France | AFP | The winner of the 2018 Ballon d’Or will be revealed at a glittering ceremony in Paris on Monday evening, with Croatia’s Luka Modric and a host of French World Cup winners all hoping to finally end the 10-year duopoly of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.Ronaldo and Messi have dominated the award for the last decade, claiming it five times each, but the expectation is that a new name will be read out as this year’s winner at just after 10pm (2100 GMT) at the Grand Palais, just off the Champs-Elysees.While Ronaldo won another Champions League with Real Madrid in a typically prolific year, and Messi continues to mesmerise for Barcelona, both are now in their 30s and neither really stamped their authority on the World Cup in Russia.That could be crucial. As FIFA president Gianni Infantino said recently: “You could give the Ballon d’Or to half the France team for what they did at the World Cup.”Six members of the France side that triumphed in Russia are among the 30 nominees for the award, which is organised by France Football magazine and voted for by 180 journalists from around the world.Among them are Paris Saint-Germain’s dazzling teenage forward Kylian Mbappe, Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann and Madrid’s Champions League-winning defender Raphael Varane. Hugo Lloris, Paul Pogba and N’Golo Kante are also in the running.The last Frenchman to win the Ballon d’Or was Zinedine Zidane in 1998, on the back of France’s World Cup victory on home soil that year.– New women’s award –But perhaps the lack of one standout French candidate has cleared the path for Modric, who heroically helped drag his country to the World Cup final before being beaten by France in Moscow.The 33-year-old was also brilliant in the Real side that retained their Champions League crown for the second year running, and the Spanish club would love to see him succeed 2016 and 2017 winner Ronaldo, who has since left the Bernabeu for Juventus. Club influences aside, Modric would be a worthy winner, even if he lacks the incredible statistics of Ronaldo and Messi.Recent evidence also goes in favour of the little playmaker, who won the Golden Ball for the best player at the World Cup before claiming UEFA’s prize for player of the season and FIFA’s best player award in September, beating Mohamed Salah and Ronaldo to the latter.“Modric is an exceptional player. He has shown that throughout his career, not just at Real but also at his former clubs and with his country,” said Real coach Santiago Solari of a player who grew up during Croatia’s independence war.“He must have grown up in a very hard context and I wonder if that helped him to have the character he has.”With Modric emerging as the most likely winner, France coach Didier Deschamps was even asked this weekend if his country’s World Cup triumph could be somehow devalued by the lack of a Ballon d’Or to go alongside it.“I don’t want to get into that debate. I don’t vote. I just hope it is a Frenchman. Whoever wins it will deserve too,” he said.In any case, the gala — which will be presented by a former France player in David Ginola — will include a prize for the best player aged under 21, the Kopa Trophy.Mbappe, who turns 20 later this month, seems a certain winner of that award, voted for by 33 living former Ballon d’Or winners.There is also now a women’s Ballon d’Or prize, voted for by 45 journalists. The 15 nominees include seven players from Lyon, the Champions League winners, and Brazil great Marta, who won the recent FIFA prize.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more
