Students' Climate Action Network (SCAN) runs billboard campaign in Cork City Centre.

Students’ Climate Action Network (SCAN) is a network of students in Ireland, calling for urgent action to prevent climate breakdown and ensure a just and sustainable future. The network aims to empower students to work together to achieve key demands for climate action that have been decided through inclusive and participatory decision-making processes facilitated by students.

Students’ Climate Action Network (SCAN) in collaboration with artist Tom Doig, Notes to Cork and TEST SITE is running a billboard campaign in Cork City. The design was created with students from across the country in collaboration with Tom Doig during summer 2021, and the billboards were installed at TEST SITE, Kyrl’s Quay by Al Dalton, Tom Doig and the Notes to Cork team on Saturday, 29th of January.

The aim of the billboards is to raise awareness - climate change is still an issue, and further action needs to be taken by the Irish government, the Irish people, and governments and people across the globe. These billboards are a reminder that the thousands of people who took to the streets to protest against climate change in 2019, are still here, and their voices should not be forgotten.

SCAN members want to share a thank you to Tom Doig, Al Dalton with Notes to Cork and for the use of the billboards at Kryl's Quay/Cornmarket St which was kindly permitted by TEST SITE - A collaborative, urban research project based at Kyrl’s Quay, co-created by Ailbhe Cunningham and Aoife Desmond.

If you are a young person in Ireland who would like to get involved with climate activism SCAN is a great organisation to get involved with. You can contact SCAN on Instagram/Twitter (@SCANIreland) or by email (
