Eco-Schools is a global programme engaging 19.5 million children across 70 countries, making it the largest educational programme on the planet. The programme was developed by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) in 1994 and run in Wales by Keep Wales Tidy.
It is designed to empower and inspire young people to make positive environmental changes to their school and wider community, while building on their skills, including numeracy and literacy, and encompassing Education for Sustainable Development and Global Citizenship.
All our Eco-Schools work through seven steps. Once a school has put this process in place and collected evidence of their progress, they can apply for an Eco-Schools Award – an internationally recognised accreditation.
We want to inspire and empower young people to drive positive environmental change.
Our free resources have been designed by our specialist education team for primary schools, secondary schools and families.
Our primary resources are designed to introduce young learners to some of the most important environmental issues facing Wales and the world.
We’ve got a wide range of secondary resources designed to inspire students to take action, all linked to the Curriculum for Wales.
Homework with a difference! Create an eco-home with fun challenges for the whole family.
