Eco-Schools is a global programme engaging millions of children across 64 different countries, making it the largest environmental schools programme in the world.
The programme provides a framework for learning and action around nine topics – biodiversity, energy, litter, global citizenship, healthy living, grounds, transport, waste and water. It follows a very simple seven-step process to lead schools on their journey to achieving a Green Flag Award.
The first recognition that can be achieved by the nursery is the Bronze Award. In order to achieve this recognition, the nursery needs to meet the criteria of the first 3 steps of the process. These include forming an eco-committee, displaying an environmental review and producing an action plan.
On average schools take around 3 months to move from registration to Bronze, this first stage is about setting the foundations to becoming a fully-fledged Eco-School.
