Eco-Schools aim to educate and empower young people to make positive decisions and become change makers for an environmentally sustainable world.  The aim is to make environmental awareness and action an intrinsic part of the life and ethos of a school.  This includes extending learning beyond the classroom and, as a partner, we support this work through our interactive animal education sessions and support of the Green Flag certification process.
