The Eco-Schools programme is an international initiative that enables sustainable development to be a major part of the life and ethos of schools. We work in partnership with Keep Wales Tidy and the National Botanic Garden of Wales to deliver the programme in the county.
Designed to fit into the curriculum, it’s an award scheme that gets everyone in the school community involved in making the school environment better and encouraging pupils to be good citizens for the future. Pupils study topics including waste, litter, energy, water, transport, healthy living and global citizenship.
All 113 schools in Carmarthenshire are now registered on the Eco-Schools programme, and to date 81 schools in Carmarthenshire have achieved the Green Flag. A further 25 schools have received the Platinum Award (schools that have been performing to green flag standard for over eight years).
