The British government wants every school to be a sustainable school by 2020. This action plan was initiated by Alan Johnson, The Education Secretary in 2006.
Five environmental education programmes were run by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE).
- Eco-school for schools : http://www.eco-schools.org.uk/about/
- Young reporters for secondary schools : http://www.youngreporters.org/
- Learning about Forests for schools : http://www.leaf-international.org/
- Blue flag for beaches : http://www.blueflag.org/
- Green key for hotels, campsites,... : http://www.green-key.org/
46 countries around the world run the Eco-Schools programme, linking more than 40,000 schools – from the UK to France, from Morocco to South Africa.
'Eco-Schools' is administered in England by Keep Britain Tidy; in Scotland by Keep Scotland Beautiful; in Wales by Keep Wales Tidy; and in Northern Ireland by Tidy Northern Ireland.
Eco-Schools programme provides numerous opportunities to link to the new curriculum such as Citizenship, Personal and Social Education, and Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) .
The programme schools work on 9 environmental topics including; water, biodiversity, energy, global perspective, healthy living, litter, schools grounds, transport and waste.
It also helps school save money.
On 28 January 2010, The new Seccretary of State for Children, Schools and Families, Ed Balls (Ministry created in 2007) set out a plan of action to help schools to join the fight against climate change — and at the same time save money.
Last, it helps get recognition.Indeed, schools work towards gaining one of three awards – Bronze, Silver and the prestigious Green Flag award, which symbolises excellence in the field of environmental activity.
The Pod was designed to help schools become more sustainable. It encourages teachers and schools to share examples of best practice with others via the website : http://www.jointhepod.org/
Their moto : '‘Learn, Act, Inspire.’
Green Day is for Key Stage 1, 2 and 3 pupils. this year, it will be on June 4th.
