Eco-Schools is an international initiative designed to encourage whole-school community action on Learning for Sustainability. The initiative provides a framework for learning and action which affords a wealth of opportunities for linking sustainable development education, global citizenship and outdoor learning.
The Eco-Schools programme is managed in Scotland by Keep Scotland Beautiful. Keep Scotland Beautiful is the leading provider of sustainable development education initiatives in schools, encouraging action and behavioural change by young people which will leave an enduring legacy for Scotland; it is part of its work to help make Scotland clean and green, today and tomorrow.
The Sustainable Development Goals are a set of global priorities for ensuring that economic, environmental, social and cultural wellbeing is achieved for everyone around the world. They are ambitious goals for governments across the world to achieve, but there is a lot we can do at Barthol Chapel School to support them.
Barthol Chapel School’s approach to Learning for Sustainability and action towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals are in the process of being finalised.
