National Operators Meeting 2019
Back in the Netherlands after 25 years! 💚

This year’s Eco-Schools National Operators Meeting (NOM) was hosted by Eco-Schools Netherlands at the Green Key awarded bungalow park Landal Reeuwijk from 11-14 November. This NOM was a true homecoming, as the first-ever Eco-Schools meeting was also held in the Netherlands, in the city of The Hague.

The main objectives of the meeting were to celebrate the Eco-Schools 25th Anniversary through campaign ceremonies, look at strategic planning for 2020-2024, strengthen Eco-Schools’ impact at a global scale through campaigns and community engagement, networking and capacity building, exploring opportunities within Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) and gaining a better understanding of the FEE EcoCampus programme, its implementation and potential.

Children for Children Campaign

It is estimated that 70,000 people, including more than 18,000 children and teachers, have been severely affected by the recent Hurricane Dorian in The Bahamas. Twelve Eco-Schools on two islands, Grand Bahama and Abaco, suffered extensive damage or were destroyed.

To support children from our twelve affected Eco-Schools and to raise educational awareness on the increasing vulnerabilities to natural disasters from climate change, the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) has teamed up with our member in The Bahamas, Bahamas Reef Environmental Education Foundation (BREEF), to launch the
Children for Children campaign. Find out how you can help support the schools!

Beekeeping and fish farming micro-projects in Tanzania

Digalama Primary School in Tanzania is surrounded by Mkingu Nature Reserve, which has a global significance due to its richness in biodiversity and endemic species. However, these are at risk of becoming extinct since the economy of habitats in the communities surrounding the forest is largely dependent on the harvesting of forest resources.

In 2016, the school decided to take action by creating sustainable solutions in the school and the village. Find out what the school did!
