Eco-Schools is a global programme engaging 19.5 million children across 70 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 skills, including numeracy and literacy, and encompassing Education for Sustainable Development and Global Citizenship.


Visit the Eco-Schools Wales website for full information and access to free resources and training events for teachers and pupils.


“Schools in the Vale of Glamorgan have embraced the Eco-Schools programme over many years and so much great work has been achieved in that time. Topics such as litter, water minimisation, energy, healthy living, biodiversity, and more have been thoroughly investigated in the classroom and beyond, enabling young learners to take practical action and empower their voice.


"Schools in the Vale are actively engaged in the international Eco-Schools programme, with each school at a unique stage of progress. Some are striving towards their Green Flag status, and many have already attained Platinum status, showcasing their unwavering commitment to sustainability. Our goal is to empower every school in the Vale to achieve and sustain their Eco-Schools award, ensuring that the community becomes even greener in the years to come!"
