We need your help – we are looking for a catchy, memorable title for our newly revamped education programme.
Burrenbeo Trust is delighted to announce that it is teaming up with the Heritage Council for a new initiative – a pilot national Place Based Learning and Stewardship programme. We will be facilitating schools and communities to explore and discover the heritage (built, natural and cultural) of their local place and then plan an action to make that place better. We have worked with Burren schools and communities with great success – now we are ready to go national. In the past we called our programme Áitbheo which means ’living place’. We would like a new, concise, and eye-catching title – a name which encapsulates the programme and tells the community what our education programme is about in just a few words. A subtitle is optional but must be short.
Win a €250 voucher to spend at a Burrenbeo business member’s business of your choice – find out who they are here.

A bit more about our education programme
Our place-based education and stewardship programme aims to inspire learning about the place, through the place and for the place, and to empower communities to take action for place. The programme believes in an integrated understanding of all the layers that make up a place; the natural and the built heritage, cultural history and land use are all interdependent and equally important factors of place.
Place-based learning offers important physical and mental health benefits to participants, giving them a greater understanding and appreciation of their local area. It contributes to ‘pride of place’ among communities and emphasises the role that each one of us can play in supporting the rich local (and global) ecosystem of which we are part. Ultimately the sustainable future of our places is dependent on people that understand, care about and value them.
