An award-winning architect and television producer, Duncan Stewart has been a leading Irish advocate for environmental, health and conservation issues for over 40 years. A champion for environmental and architectural conservation since his student days, for the past two decades Duncan has also been a popular television personality in Ireland.
His early shows ‘Our House’ and ‘About the House’ leaned on his architectural background as he promoted the values of quality Irish craftsmanship, efficient and sustainable materials and the value of energy conservation. Duncan’s current television programme ‘Eco Eye’, now in its fourteenth series, is driven by his interests in the protection of our environment, Ireland’s biodiversity, supporting local communities and the communication of climate issues.
“We are sharing this planet together with all those other species so I feel very strongly how we fit into the ecosystem of the biosphere and how we play our role because we are the ones who are doing all the damage. I think we all have a role to play, especially where children are concerned.”
* Duncan Stewart is an ambassador for Global Action Plan’s Water Explorer 2016 programme.
