The Eco-Schools Methodology encompasses Seven Steps that any school can adopt. The process involves a wide range of stakeholders, but students play the central role.
After a minimum of one year of participation, an evaluation of the success of these initiatives and the methodology is undertaken, and the whole Eco-Schools programme for each school is assessed.
Recognition of the success of an Eco-School’s initiatives happens through a three tier system where schools are awarded either bronze or silver certificates before getting the Green flag. The Green Flag is an internationally acknowledged symbol for environmental excellence.
