Future Fix

Are vegetable peels really just rubbish? How many different ways can we use seaweed in food, farming or healthcare?  What are we pouring down our drains? Taking a handful of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals as a starting point, Future Fix poses questions to help us to tune into a greener way of living.

In Episode One we drop into the science and nutrition kitchen at ATU Sligo and turn our attention to the issue of food waste.

Today we look in on the Community Garden in Cranmore and join a gaggle of excitable children at Science Week in ATU Sligo, to see how our sustainable development goals touch on water – both freshwater and our oceans.

In the third episode of Future Fix we see through the eyes of a group of children, to take a little time out to appreciate the range of organic life, urban and rural, that’s so closely linked with our own.

The fourth week of Future Fix takes us to Kilglass Garden with Daithi Gormley and the Men’s Shed from Cranmore, to examine how our connection with our environment can contribute to health.

In Episode Five we return to the ATU in Sligo to get the lowdown on some dynamic research projects aimed at opening more climate friendly options for Irish farms.

The final episode in the series turns to waste packaging and asks how we might make better choices for ourselves that can help feed into the big fix to the waste problem from the bottom up.
