03 Environmental Education Broadcasting 1Despite the great challenge from the internet, the broadcast media (television and radio) remain influential and can be a great educational tool. Media outlets should broadcast more programmes that promote public awareness and understanding of environmental issues. There is funding for these types of programmes on television and radio under the ‘Sound and Vision’ scheme from the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland (BAI). This funding scheme should continue and should be expanded to include programmes about all aspects of sustainability, with an emphasis on practical solutions that people can undertake in their daily lives.
