Celebrating a 25 years of eco-action
We are very excited to announce that the adventurer, author and presenter of Expedition and Deadly 60 Steve Backshall, will be our guest speaker and presenter at the first ever National Eco-Schools Award Ceremony on Thursday 12th December at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester. Will your school be there?
‘I’m delighted to be presenting at the Eco-Schools award ceremony and to be supporting the largest educational programme on the planet at a time when environmental education is more important than ever. I’m looking forward to meeting all the winning schools and hearing about their innovative Eco-Schools actions and can’t wait to meet the volunteers who give up their time to support the programme. Get your school’s eco-award application in today!’
Thanks to the Players of the People’s Postcode Lottery we will be celebrating the amazing achievements of Eco-Schools (old and new) from across the country who have been working on the Seven Steps and Eco-Schools topics.
