Our Green Flag Success 
Our Green Flag Success

 

Parkhill school has a long tradition of success winning and keeping green flags.    We currently have 4 of them.

  Eco-Schools is the largest sustainable schools programme in the world and is operated internationally by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE).  It connects 15 million children, young people and educators through sustainable development education and is the biggest learning network in the world.  

Eco-Schools is an international initiative designed to  encourage whole-school community action on Learning for Sustainability.  It is an environmental management tool, a learning resource and a recognised award scheme which empowers children and young people to take action towards an economically, socially and environmentally just world.  

The initiative provides a framework for learning and action which affords a wealth of  opportunities for linking sustainable development education, global citizenship and outdoor learning. Eco-Schools weaves these elements together through the everyday curricular work undertaken by schools and encourages closer links between schools and the communities around them.


Where did Eco-Schools come from?
At the UN Conference on Environment and Development (Rio Earth Summit) in 1992, a need to involve young people in finding solutions to sustainable development challenges was identified.  

The Eco-Schools programme was developed in 1994 by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE), and introduced into the UK (including Scotland), in 1995.  

There are now 63 countries on all five continents participating in the Eco-Schools programme. The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) is very supportive of the programme and is an institutional partner of FEE, as is the Scottish Government.

The Eco-Schools Programme in Scotland
The Eco-Schools programme is managed in Scotland by Keep Scotland Beautiful.  

Keep Scotland Beautiful is the leading provider of sustainable development education initiatives in schools, encouraging action and behavioural change by young people which will leave an enduring legacy for Scotland; it is part of its work to help make Scotland clean and green, today and tomorrow.
