Eco-schools is the biggest educational programme in the world, helping school communities all around the globe to learn about sustainability and reduce their environmental footprint. Sustainable Dorset is a local platform for Eco-Schools across the county to come together and share ideas. please contact if you would like to be part of it. What are Eco-Schools? The Eco-Schools programme provides a simple, seven-step framework that answers this question whilst empowering young people to make a difference in their school, local community and beyond. Since 1994, millions of young people around the world have worked through the Eco-Schools Seven Steps before being recognised for their efforts with a prestigious Eco-Schools Green Flag. Schools connect their activities to three or more of the Ten Eco-Schools Topics. These topics break large, global issues like climate change into more manageable and directed themes that prompt young people to consider environmental changes that they can make in their school and everyday lives. ​ For further information on the Eco-Schools Seven Steps and how they are delivered, visit the Eco-Schools website here
