Education and volunteering


Enviroschools is a facilitated Education for Sustainability programme implemented through a whole school approach to benefit the school and wider community.

Students develop skills, understanding, knowledge and confidence through planning, designing and working towards creating a sustainable school.

Enviroschools offers schools:

  • an opportunity to make environmental education a central part of school life
  • enriched and integrated educational experiences
  • an opportunity to develop young people's decision making skills
  • potential for financial savings
  • a chance to share ideas with other schools
  • access to a network of support agencies
  • an opportunity to become part of a global movement.

Recognising achievement

Every year participating schools reflect on their progress towards creating a sustainable community.

At the annual celebration students share with other schools what they have been doing and receive recognition for their achievements.

There are three levels of achievement - Bronze, Silver and Green-Gold.

For more information, contact us and ask for the regional Enviroschools coordinator.
