16 million children attend an Eco-Schools worldwide, more than the entire population of Guaetmala! Eco-Schools is operated globally by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE), and was launched in 1994 in response to the 1992 UN Rio Earth Summit.
Environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy is the Eco-Schools National Operator for the UK, where more than 17,000 schools are registered and 1,200 schools currently hold the Eco-Schools Green Flag.
The programme provides a framework for learning and action around nine topics – biodiversity, energy, litter, global citizenship, healthy living, school grounds, transport, waste and water. It follows a very simple seven-step process to lead schools on their journey to achieving a Green Flag Award – find out more on how the programme works.
The programme is pupil-led and encourages whole school involvement. It also encourages closer links between schools and their communities. It offers many benefits for individual pupils, developing their knowledge and skills and improving their well-being. There are also many benefits for schools, with an added bonus of saving money.
