To meet the increasing demand for high quality training for architects, engineers and landscape designers we offer specialised industry
training seminars to further the understanding of constructed wetland
systems for effluent treatment and stormwater management. A confident
awareness of how these can be used in your profession can help to
enhance project development and procurement and maximise the
environmental gain in a new project.

Education and provision of information on environmental issues has
become important for schools, colleges, government bodies and industry.
FHWS have been involved in various environmental education projects.
These have included the production of the "West Cork Environment"
information pack for West Cork Leader as well as delivering regular
courses on environment related topics to PLC courses, specialist
industry groups, third level colleges and community/environmental
FH Wetland Systems offers a slide presentation and lecture on
constructed wetlands to groups including sustainable architecture,
horticulture, organic farming and others. We offer a weekend, one day
or half day workshop on constructed wetlands and water treatment
related topics to interested groups that wish to learn more about how
to select the most appropriate treatment system for their site and to
learn about the design and construction of their own wetland system. We
have also worked with many local environmental and education bodies
around the country, offering courses in their venues to reach their
members and offer tailor made courses to suit their needs.
As an example of education material prepared by FHWS, see "An Introduction to the West Cork Environment", an information pack designed for school, library and public use for raising awareness and pride in the local environment. This project was commissioned by West Cork Leader Co-op as part of their promotion of the region.
How we feel about the way we see the world around us directly effects the world we see. Eco-Visioning is an educational tool designed to facilitate participants in envisioning the best imaginable future and inviting that into being.
One of the tools we can use in Eco-Visioning is the constellation process developed by Bert Hellinger, where we can look at a particular issue, environmental or other, in a new light and help to fully understand it.
Contact FHWS for details of the next Eco-Visioning workshop if you would like to participate in this exciting creative exercise.
