Environmental education for now and for the future.
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 ran 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, but Independent Schools are required to contribute towards the support they receive.
To maximise success, all our Eco-Schools work through seven steps
