Belfast, Northern Ireland BT3 9QQ

Join Jacqui Bailey, author of ‘What’s the point of being green?’, shortlisted for the Royal Society Young People’s Book Prize, as she delivers a refreshing take on rubbish and recycling - one of today’s key environmental issues - that will entertain enthusiastic greens and engage more reluctant ones. Jacqui’s talk will be followed by the interactive show ‘The landfill time forgot’ where children will go back in time to learn the gruesome truth about landfill sites, what goes into them, what comes out, and what we can do to help the stink to ‘shrink’!

This event is free - no ticket or advanced booking required, and is aimed at those between the ages of 8 and 14.


'What's the point of being green?' is being held at W5, an Interactive Discovery Centre in Belfast, Northern Ireland, and is Ireland's award-winning science and discovery centre at the Odyssey in Belfast. The venue does charge for admission, for prices please visit the venue website www.w5online.co.uk
