The Eco-Schools programme is an international initiative which enables sustainable development to be a major part of the life and ethos of schools. Carmarthenshire County Council works in partnership with Keep Wales Tidy and the National Botanic Garden of Wales to deliver it 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 125 schools in Carmarthenshire are now registered on the Eco-Schools programme, and to date Carmarthenshire has achieved 134 Green Flags in total.
