Eco School

What is Eco-Schools?


Eco-Schools is a global programme engaging millions of children across 67 countries, making it the largest educational programme in the world.

For more than 20 years Eco-Schools has been empowering children to drive change and improve their environmental awareness through the same simple seven-step process that has been used successfully across the world.

 Birchen Coppice children have been working hard for their eco school award and have so far gained Bronze level.  They are now working towards Gold Level and are working through the seven steps process.   For more information on each step, please click on the links below.
