At Eyam we have an Eco Team who work together to lead our school environmental action. Here is our pledge:
At green Eyam we work as a team to care, share, recycle and save.
We are learning about all 9 aspects of ECO: water; transport; energy; global citizenship; school grounds; biodiversity; litter; waste; healthy living.
‘the team help us understand how we can all learn to take responsibility to protect the world for tomorrow’
We want to make a difference. The Eco team explain: At our meetings we discuss what we are going to do next, like choosing monitors, checking the meter, making posters saying turn off the taps or measuring what we’re wasting. When it was our water project we designed and gave out homework so the children could monitor how much water they used at home. We always write notes so we can remember what we’ve decided to do next.
The Eco-Schools Programme
Eco-Schools is an international award programme that guides schools on their sustainable journey, providing a simple framework to help make sustainability an integral part of school life. Eco-Schools can help enhance the curriculum and get the whole school united behind something important.
Our mission is to help make every school in the country sustainable and to bring about behaviour change in young people and those connected to them so that good habits learned in schools are followed through into homes and communities.
The Eco warriors have been researching a suitable charity to raise funds for. What do you know about the significance of the kelp forests?
