Eco Schools......

Eco-schools is an amazing phenomenon that encourages the youth to actively participate in protecting their environment. It all begins in the classroom, then expands to the entire school, and finally brings change in the neighbouring community. Through this scheme, young people get involved in their school’s environmental policies which come with being granted a Green Flag. In short, it’s an incredible way for schools as well as the local community to embark on a meaningful journey towards creating a more sustainable environment. Besides, Eco-Schools motivates students to engage in solving environmental problems, making them feel that they’re special and can make a difference. It instills a sense of responsibility and fosters a sustainable mindset in students, which they can apply on their daily activities. Plus, the scheme strongly emphasises on involving the community in every step, something which leads to the creation of environmentally responsible behaviour patterns. eco schools

Eco-Schools Scheme is Holistic

Being holistic, the Eco-Schools programme strives to make environmental awareness an intrinsic part of everyone’s life. This includes the students, teachers, parents, local businesses, and all non-teaching staff. Eco-Schools aims to take learning beyond the classroom and build responsible attitudes both at home and school. Its participatory approach and collaborative learning/action make the scheme an ideal way for students to improve their environment and positively influence the lives of other young people, local authorities, school staff, and families.

The Benefits of Eco-Schools

Eco-Schools is a participatory programme which allows students to experience active citizenship. It brings numerous benefits to schools as well as the community at large. It doesn’t only create a sustainable environment but also creates huge financial savings. Reducing waste plus collecting recyclable materials can help raise funds for the school. Besides, the actions taken can result in low energy bills, water consumption expenses, in addition to reduced waste collection bills.
Other benefits include:
Eco-Schools Green Flag: This programme offers a great opportunity for schools to work towards the prestigious Green Flag award. Every pupil would love to receive the flag- it’s an incredible way to appreciate their effort!
Increased Environmental Awareness: Students and teachers are encouraged to utilise their new environmental knowledge to improve their school life. This helps learners to realise the relevance of what they study in the classroom.
Improved School Environment: Though the Eco-Schools programme, students plus staff can cooperate to reduce litter as well as waste and run the school in a more environmentally conscious way.
Local Community Participation: Local enterprises have expertise in various sectors of environmental management and might be willing to participate in the Eco-Schools initiative. And this will lead to a more united community. Plus, the scheme’s Delivery Partner Organisations support registered Eco-Schools by delivering 10 Topics of the programme to each one of them. Teaching resources, project ideas/activities, as well as curriculum activities, are available for all Eco-Schools.
Pupil Empowerment: Through the democratic scheme, students can control their own environment and make decisions about how they can improve their home, school, and the entire neighbourhood. In a nutshell, Eco-schools is an amazing resource for schools wanting to save money, enhance their curriculum, grow their school community and altogether improve their school.
