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.

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

BREEF is supporting Eco-Schools in The Bahamas by implenting our Resilient Blue Bahamas programme. In additon, the global Eco-schools network is supporting The Bahamas Eco-Schools affected by hurricane Dorian through the Children for Children campaign.
