International exchange

More than 59.000 schools are joining Eco-Schools worldwide. Together they form the global movement of sustainable schools. We share the mission of creating a sustainable future. Students can exchange their sustainable projects on an international level. This way they will enrich themselves in different contexts and see how their fellow Eco-Teams operate in other parts of the world. Are you interested? We’d be happy to put you in touch.
