Eco School

Eco-Schools is a global programme engaging 19.5 million children across 67 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 key skills, including numeracy and literacy, and encompassing Education for Sustainable Development and Global Citizenship. 

The programme in Wales is funded by Welsh Government and free for Local Authority schools. 

The Eco-School programme in Wales covers nine interlinked topics to help schools develop a more rounded approach to Education for Sustainable Development and Global Citizenship. 

The Eco-Schools topics are: Litter, Waste minimisation, Water, Transport, School Grounds, Global Citizenship, Energy, Biodiversity, Healthy Living and Transport.
