Environmental guidance for your business in Northern Ireland & Scotland

Eco-schools

The Eco-schools programme

The main purpose of Eco-schools is to develop environmental awareness and action among young people, making sustainability issues a central part of the school curriculum. This includes making links with the wider community and activities involving pupils, staff and parents. Eco-schools can promote an understanding of the issues surrounding sustainable development to a wide audience. It is a central part of environmental education and can generate green school ideas that can improve the school environment.

If your school registers with the Eco-schools programme you will need to develop practical steps to reduce the environmental impact of your school through pupil involvement in a range of activities.

Schools which are successful in following a programme will be rewarded with the Green Flag, which is a recognised and respected eco-label for environmental education and performance. For further information see the Eco-schools website.
