Eco-Schools 25th Anniversary Video Campaign

In 2019, Eco-Schools celebrates 25 years of excellence in the field of Environmental Education and Education for Sustainable Development.

This campaign aims to involve each and every actor within the Eco-Schools global network – students, teachers, school and University administration, school staff, volunteers, other organisations, and our institutional and corporate partners – to voice a message to the global community; that it only takes an idea told out loud to engage ourselves and our political leaders in positive actions!

Round Table Discussion at COP24: Climate Change Education (CCE) challenges

Last December, the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) organised a roundtable discussion at COP24 to address the issue of Education as a fundamental tool to address climate change challenges. Following the roundtable, a report with the recommendations and the summary of the discussions generated during the roundtable was produced. 

The report is ready to be shared and you can find it here!
