Sign up as an eco-school

Eco-schools is an international award programme, which helps to guide schools into educating pupils in environmental issues.

Many schools in North Lincolnshire have already signed up to the programme which is free and makes tackling sustainable issues easy for schools.

Once registered, schools follow a simple process which helps them to address a variety of environmental themes, including:

  • Waste
  • Biodiversity
  • Energy
  • Global perspectives
  • Healthy living
  • Litter
  • School grounds
  • Transport 
  • Water

Visit the Eco-schools website and the Wastebuster Eco-schools pages for further information.
