The Eco-Schools Programme is an international initiative which recognises schools that strive to make environmental sustainability an integral part of school life. It guides schools on their sustainability journey by providing a simple framework for them to adopt and rewards those that are successful with the prestigious Green Flag.
Participation in the Eco-Schools Programme prompts schools to enhance their school-based curriculum and activities for environmental education and gets the whole school united in addressing important environmental issues. 

Mission
