Over 900 schools nationwide are involved in Eco-schools. Eco-schools aims at whole school improvement through teacher capacity building and implementing requirements in the curriculum. Schools are required to compile a portfolio of evidence on their activities and these are evaluated annually. Environmental education service providers are welcome to register and become Eco-Centres. Eco-Centres are required to support Eco-schools and are eligible to fly the green flag.
For more information, please contact Janice April, the regional coordinator of Eco-Schools at 021 705 9863 or 084 657 0581 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Visit the Eco-Schools website hosted by WESSA.
