The Eco-Schools Programme is the largest sustainable schools programme in the world with over 40,000 registered schools in more than 50 countries across Europe, Africa, the Middle-East, Asia, the Caribbean, USA, Mexico and Brazil.
Through a simple, seven-step process Eco-Schools empowers children and youth to take action for the environment, while engaging them in fun, action-oriented learning and community outreach. Successful Eco-Schools are awarded the Green Flag, an internationally acknowledged symbol for environmental excellence.
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 FEE representative for The Bahamas and National Operator for the Eco-Schools Programme.
The Eco-Schools Bahamas Programme is supported in part by the Ministry of Tourism and endorsed by the Ministry of Education, Science & Technology.
