Students need to make up at least 2/3 of the Eco Committee members!
2. THE ENVIRONMENTAL REVIEW

3. THE ACTION PLAN
Based on the Environmental Review, the Eco-Committee decides on three priority themes to focus on in the Eco-Schools project. One of these should always be Global Citizenship or Climate Change.
4. MONITORING & EVALUATION
The Eco Committee will monitor and review progress against the Action Plan's set targets and timeframe and identify areas for continuous improvement. They build on successes and decide on remedial action if activities are not proving successful.
