Wonderful to have you here! We believe that students often have very good ideas on how to make their school more sustainable. Greta Thunberg and her climate strikes already have shown that young people want to change and that are well aware of what climate change is about.
Eco-Schools gives you the opportunity to actively be engaged with your school. Your plans and ideas matter! They will all be taken into account to make the school a beautiful place. Together with other students you form a close team, wherein you can think and act sustainably. In this team you’ll have a lot of fun, being able to express your own interests and qualities.
