This week (6-12 November) the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) will be celebrating Global Action Days and raising awareness of the positive action that is taking place around the world to create a more sustainable society.

We’re a proud member of FEE and want to take this opportunity to thank the businesses, schools and organisations involved in our international programmes for their hard work, commitment and innovation.

It’s been another big year for our international programmes…

Green Key

Green Key is the largest global eco-label awarded to more than 2,600 hospitality providers in 56 countries worldwide.

In Wales, Green Key has gained interest on a national scale with businesses throughout the sector achieving the accreditation, including Glan Llyn Farmhouse in the Clwydian Range and Surf Snowdonia.

Blue Flag

A record-breaking 50 Blue Flags are currently flying in Wales, with 45 beaches, three marinas and two boat tour operators achieving international success.

In May, Blue Ocean Adventures in St Davids and Ribride at Menai Bridge became the first sustainable boat tour operators in the UK to achieve Blue Flag status –  reaching international standards in sustainability, safety and environmental education.

Eco-Schools

Eco-Schools is a global education programme engaging millions of children across 64 countries.

Nearly 800 schools in Wales hold the prestigious Green Flag. This includes 320 Platinum schools – these are schools that demonstrate long-term commitment and are ranked among the best in the world on the Eco-Schools programme.

Over 95% of schools in Wales are registered on Eco-Schools programme, which is funded here by the Welsh Government.
