Eco-Schools is an internationally recognised awards programme for excellence in environmental education and action. The charity provides a seven-step framework to guide and motivate pupils to drive change and improve environmental awareness in their school, local community and beyond.

After completing the seven-step framework, schools can apply for the Eco-Schools Green Flag accreditation, which recognises and celebrates the achievements of young people. More than anything though, pupils find it fun and inspiring!

Visit the Eco-Schools website to find out how to register and begin the seven-step process. For inspiration, take a look at a few examples of Suffolk schools that have been awarded Green Flag status.
