Seven Steps

The Seven Steps to Green Flag success

Before starting your Eco-Schools journey you will need to find a member of staff from your school who is willing to volunteer to become your Eco-Coordinator. Most Eco-Coordinators (from our 18,600 registered Eco-Schools) are geography or science teachers, form tutors, heads of year or even deputy/head teachers.

Once they have agreed to help and registered your school you will be able to start working on the Seven Steps.
