We are proud to partner with the EPA at this year’s National Student Media Awards, as they will be returning to sponsor the EPA Award for Journalism Relating to the Environment.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is an independent public organisation that ensures Ireland’s environment is protected. They assess changes in environmental trends and detect early signs of neglect or deterioration. The EPA also enforces drinking water regulations, monitors emissions in Ireland’s air, and registers and licenses any activities involving radiation. 

We’re delighted to be working with such an important organisation- check out @epaireland for more information on their great work.
