BizWorld

BizWorld is an educational programme created by business people and educators which encourages children to learn about entrepreneurship and enterprise.

Here is a short video we made in 2014 for BizWorld’s Responsible Innovative Social Entrepreneur Awards.

Department of Education and Science

In 2005 Ocarina (in association with Kairos Communications) produced ‘As Go Brách Linn’: two children’s programmes for the Department of Education and Science.

“As Go Brách Linn” loosely means ‘away with us on an adventure’. Two children teamed up to explore what their lives would be like if they lived in another part of European Union that was very different to where they come from in Ireland. Two boys Padraic and Noel from the Aran Islands, travelled from to Helsinki in the first programme. Niamh and Orla from Dublin went to Cefalú in Sicily for the second programme. Both programmes were broadcast on TG4.
