Green-Schools’ mission is to protect planet Earth – our shared home to which we all belong – and we want everyone involved! We warmly welcome participants of all backgrounds, cultures, races and ethnicities, religions and belief systems, abilities, sexual orientations and gender identities. Equity, diversity and social justice are fundamental to our values – so whoever you are, we can’t wait to have YOU involved!

Green-Schools, known internationally as Eco-Schools, is coordinated by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE). FEE’s programmes include: Eco-Schools, Young Reporters for the Environment, Learning About Forests (LEAF), Blue Flag and Green Key.

Eco-Schools is a fundamental initiative which encourages young people to engage in their environment by allowing them the opportunity to actively protect it. It starts in the classroom, it expands to the school and eventually fosters change in the community at large. Eco-Schools is currently operating in 62 countries worldwide with over 16 million students taking part.

An Taisce works to preserve and protect Ireland’s natural and built heritage. An Taisce is an independent charitable voice for the environment and for heritage issues.
