Selected Eco-leaders went over to Bromsgrove School to meet their leaders and discuss future projects.
This year our school is working towards Eco-Schools Green Flag accreditation, which raises awareness of environmental issues and empowers young people to make a difference. The programme offers a seven-step framework that lets students choose from ten Eco-Schools topics and decide on actions to involve their school and community. The programme is operated by Keep Britain Tidy and benefits both the planet and young people. You can find out more on the Eco-Schools website below:
With the world beginning to experience the effects of climate change; different species of plant and animals becoming extinct every day; and micro-plastics being found in the most remote locations on Earth - now, is the time to educate future generations about the impact of our actions on the planet we call home.
The Eco-Schools programme began in 1994, is delivered in more than 70 countries around the world and in England is operated by the environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy. The programme not only positively impacts our planet (for example schools participating in the programme planted 37,865 trees during the last academic year), it also benefits young people, building teamwork and leadership skills whilst increasing confidence and reducing eco-anxiety.
The most important thing to remember is that the Eco-Schools programme should be led by you, the students.
Our Eco-Army currently consists of 136 pupils enrolled in over 5 different job rolls to create our class Pods.
