#EcoSchoolsAtHome

Raising the next generation of Eco-Warriors to change the world.

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we all work. Since March 2020, pupils have been taught online from home, or in ‘bubbles’ at school, which have been designed to limit face-to-face interactions. Because of these circumstances, Eco-Committees across England have innovated, thinking of new ways to engage with the Eco-Schools programme and take responsibility for protecting our planet.

Perhaps the biggest innovation, which happened almost instantly, was Eco-Committees expanding their Eco-Schools work into their classmates homes. Eco-Committees across England began hosting Eco-Committee Meetings online and setting Eco-Challenges that could be completed by students safely at home (or within their bubble) whilst also providing perfect evidence to apply for an Eco-Schools Green Flag award.

Below you can find award winning projects the Eco-Schools have created to help Eco-Committees to continue and expand their Eco-Schools work, even whilst working from home!

NEW #EcoSchoolsAtHome Seven Step Challenge

An inclusive challenge designed to encourage families to discuss our planet’s health and spread the Eco-Schools ethos into pupil’s homes. It can easily be set as homework over a period of weeks, or during school holidays. It also provides great evidence for Step 5: Informing and Involving.

My Actions Matter

An action-oriented global campaign to care for our own and our Earth’s well-being.

#MyActionsMatter School Guide

In conjunction with International Earth Day on 22 April 2021, thousands of educators and students from across 77 countries are coming together to participate in the My Actions Matter campaign.

This Global Action Days campaign is designed as a 21-day journey of ‘Compassionate Positive Actions’ to inspire participants to live and act differently.

The campaign will provide Eco-Coordinators and their Eco-Committees, through the creative and interactive mobile app TreasureEarth with daily actions to become more compassionate towards our Earth. It will mobilise the school communities in the global Eco-Schools network and demonstrate how individual actions can have a clear and meaningful impact on our own and our Earth?s wellbeing.

Starting on Monday 19th April 2021 each of the three campaign weeks will be dedicated to the following themes:

  • Week 1 – Protect Global Biodiversity
  • Week 2 – Reduce Environmental Pollution
  • Week 3 – Empower Climate Action
