Glasgow's Green Schools

From making your school greener both inside and outside and throughout the curriculum learning about climate change actions for children, parents and teachers, there are many ways schools in Glasgow are making a difference.

As models of good practice, they offer young people the chance to contribute to sustainable living and demonstrate good practices to others.

The Eco-Schools international award programme guides schools on their sustainable journey, providing a framework to help embed these principles into the heart of school life.

Children are the driving force behind Eco-Schools - they lead the eco-committee and help carry out an audit to assess the environmental performance of their school.

Eco Schools is proving incredibly popular, with 302 schools registered in the programme.
