Around 90% of schools in Wales are part of Eco-Schools, the largest education programme on the planet. Every day pupils are making positive environmental changes to their school and the wider community.

This award celebrates the most innovative environmental projects taking place in Wales’ Eco-Schools.

We want to encourage staff within schools to nominate their learners. We’d love to hear about Eco-Committees or clubs that have come up with inspiring ways to address important environmental issues.

They may have joined forces with local businesses to reduce single-use plastics. Perhaps they’ve linked up with a school in another country to develop a campaign. Or maybe they’ve set up an exciting uniform and clothing swap that’s making a real difference to families in the local area.
