What is Eco schools?

 

The Eco-Schools Programme encourages pupils to engage with sustainable development and global citizenship issues.

Pupils take key roles in decision-making and participation in order to reduce the environmental impact of the school. In this way, Eco-Schools extends learning beyond the classroom and develops responsible attitudes both at home and in the wider community. 

One element of the Eco-Schools Programme is the establishment of an Eco-Committee – the driving force of the project. This is made up of pupils, staff, governors and parents who encourage the involvement of all members of the school community. The Eco-School committee process provides a useful model for effective communication and decision-making.
