Global Reach

The Eco-Schools Programme is the largest sustainable schools programme in the world with over 52,000 registered schools in 68 countries across Europe, Africa, the Middle-East, Asia, the Caribbean, USA, Mexico and Brazil.

Education for Sustainable Development Goals

The Eco-Schools Programme was developed by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) in 1994, in response to UN Agenda 21 which calls for reorienting education towards sustainable development. BREEF is the official FEE representative for The Bahamas is the National Operator for the Eco-Schools Bahamas Programme

Through a simple, seven-step process Eco-Schools empowers children and youth to take action for the environment by engaging them in fun, action-oriented learning and community outreach.  Successful Eco-Schools are awarded the prestigious Green Flag, an internationally recognized symbol of excellence in environmental education and practice.

National Reach

Presently, the Eco-Schools Bahamas network is spread over six islands and consists of 17 government and 17 private schools.  Eleuthera’s Deep Creek Middle School has the distinction of being the first school in the English speaking Caribbean to be awarded the prestigious Green Flag in 2010.  And, in 2012 Abacos’ Hopetown Primary School became the second school in The Bahamas to attain Green Flag status. To date, there are 14 Green Flag Eco-Schools throughout The Bahamas.

Children for Children

BREEF supports Eco-Schools in The Bahamas through our Resilient Blue Bahamas programme. Resilient Blue Bahamas is a curriculum-based educational module specifically designed to increase student’s awareness of climate change and the role that Bahamian marine ecosystems play in mitigating the effects of hurricanes.  Additionally, the global Eco-Schools network is supporting Abaco and Grand Bahama Eco-Schools affected by hurricane Dorian through the Children for Children campaign.
