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!
