Each Eco-Schools project follows the seven step framework, which includes for example a student-led Eco Committee, a comprehensive Environmental Review and an Eco Code followed by the whole school.


Eco-Schools 7 steps and criteria for awarding the Green Flag

Eco-Schools is a project-based programme. Each Eco-Schools project, lasting between 1-2 school years, follows the same seven step framework. After completing all the seven steps and filling the National criteria for awarding the Green Flag, the school may apply for the Green Flag certificate.

The Green Flag certificate is valid for 2 years from awarding: the school may renew the certification by completing another successful Eco-Schools project and applying for Green Flag renewal within that period.
