Initially part of a Research Masters degree, this project has now been extended to a PhD to further explore possibilities of developing a child rights based education for sustainable development/climate action approach. It comes in 2 iterations.

Iteration 1 entitled 'Can we see our voices'? took place over 9 months in 2019. This involved a child rights based research approach that explored with young children in a ECEC setting in Ireland their own perspectives of Nature and subsequent contributions for developing a child rights based education for sustainable development/climate action.

Iteration 2 entitled 'How can we see your voices?' is a participatory action research study based on the methodology of Iteration 1, that explores with ECEC practitioners their lived experiences and perspectives of their supporting role of duty bearer under Article 29 1 (e).

The intention of this website is to provide a space that includes resources and ideas that can be shared with the wider ECEC community as we together advocate for childrens' rights to learn in, through, about and for Nature.
