Eco-schools programme

What is the eco-schools programme?

We are implementing a very exciting two-year project which will provide educational establishments in Hackney the opportunity to be part of the largest environmental educational programme in the world – the eco-schools programme (ESP).

The programme:

  • inspires and empowers pupils
  • raises environmental awareness
  • improves the school environment
  • creates financial savings
  • involves the whole school and wider community in environmental projects – and most importantly it engages the youth of today to protect the planet of tomorrow

What we’ll do

As part of this project, we’ll:

  • provide full support (from start to finish) to guide and mentor through the programme
  • create and inspire positive change through positive actions
  • improve waste prevention measures and recycling processes
  • pay the assessment fees which award the internationally recognised eco-school green flag status.
