Step 2: Informing and Involving

The whole school community should be involved in your Eco-Schools programme from the start and key issues from Eco-Schools Committee meetings that concern the whole school and the local community should be shared whenever possible:

  • During school assemblies;
  • At parent meetings;
  • At school management meetings and teacher briefings;
  • During morning registration;
  • At Parent-Teacher Association meetings and School Board meetings;
  • On a prominent Eco Notice Board;
  • In school newsletters or press releases for the local news;
  • During special open days at school

Involving the local community will increase knowledge, expertise and practical skills, and could lead to additional resources and financial support for the Eco-Schools programme.
