For anyone who has an involvement with a school, here are two excellent schools projects run by nationwide organisations, The Woodland Trust and Keep Britain Tidy.
Woodland Trust Green Tree Schools Award
The Green Tree Schools Award encourages outdoor learning and inspires pupils to learn about trees, woods and wildlife.Through our award, your school can take part in fun, practical projects while helping the environment and improving your grounds. It’s completely free and we provide resources and support to help you get the most out of it.
Eco Schools Awards – part of Keep Britain Tidy
The Eco-Schools Green Flag is an internationally recognised award for excellence in environmental action and learning. You can work up to Green Flag level by achieving Bronze and Silver awards which are self-accredited stepping stones along the way.
There is no time limit for how quickly you need to achieve your Green Flag after registration, however, on average it takes around one academic year. Schools are then asked to renew their Green Flag award every two years
