The Aim of the Awards

The Our World Awards seek to enable pupils to learn about the lives of children and their families in developing countries and how Ireland, through Irish Aid, and 192 other countries in the United Nations are working together to create a safer and fairer world, and a better future for all the world’s children. Pupils as global citizens can play their part by taking part in the Awards and engaging with these issues.

This Year’s Theme

This year’s theme, One World, One Future, invites pupils to learn about the Global Goals and how Irish Aid is working hard to create a better world and a better future for children living in poverty.

The Global Goals

All countries of the United Nations, including Ireland, are now working together to create a better world and a better future for us all by 2030, through the Global Goals for Sustainable Development which build on the achievements of the previous UN Millennium Development Goals. 

Support for teachers and schools

We provide teachers with curriculum related lesson plans and information on the website. We send out free pupils’ magazines and free teachers’ packs to all participating schools. Advice and support is available throughout the duration of the programme by phone and online.

National Final 2015

The Our World Irish Aid Awards National Final

Following regional finals in Dublin, Limerick, Cork and Sligo, the top 15 schools are invited to the Our World Irish Aid Awards National Final in Dublin Castle as a reward for their hard work. The National Final is a fantastic day out where pupils and their teachers showcase their projects, take part in games and activities, meet the minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade, and each school receives a prestigious Our World Irish Aid Awards trophy. Last year Vicarstown NS Co Cork were the overall winners… this year it could be you!
