Eco-Schools is the largest educational programme on the planet, engaging millions of children across 67 countries. Implemented by Tidy Up Britain in England, it encourages students to actively protect their environment through pupil-led projects that involve the school and the community. Participating schools tend to produce less general waste, and consume less water and energy, thereby saving money. Furthermore, schools have noticed a positive impact on the pupils.
For over 25 years the programme has put young people at the heart of environmental education, empowering students to drive change and improve their environmental awareness by following a simple Seven Step framework in order to achieve an internationally-recognised Eco-Schools Green Flag accreditation.
The Eco-Schools team are always available to provide support, advice and inspiration and registering for the Eco-Schools programme is completely free. When registered, schools have access to a whole host of age-appropriate, free resources to make your school’s journey to Eco-Schools Green Flag as smooth and positive as possible.
