Your charity for Scotland’s environment

FEE

We have been a member of the Foundation for Environmental Education since 1995 when we started to coordinate the Eco-Schools programme and Blue Flag Award for beaches in Scotland.

The Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) is active across the world, helping communities to realise the benefits of sustainable living through education and active learning.

We have supported the development of three FEE activities over the past 20 years. These are Eco-Schools, Blue Flag and Young Reporters for the Environment.

 

Eco-Schools

Eco-Schools is the largest sustainable schools programme in the world and is operated in 58 countries.  It connects 15 million children, young people and educators through sustainable development education and is the biggest learning network in the world.

Since 1995 we have supported, developed and managed Eco-Schools Scotland.   We now work with 98% of schools to encourage whole-school community action on Learning for Sustainability.

We are the leading provider of sustainable development initiatives in Scottish schools, encouraging action and behavioural change by young people which will leave an enduring legacy.

We are particularly grateful to the Scottish Government for their continuing funding of this activity.

In 2010 we hosted the International National Operators Meeting in Edinburgh, bringing delegates who are involved in delivering Eco-Schools across the world together.

 

Young Reporters for the Environment

The international Young Reporters for the Environment programme aims to empower young people to take a stand on environmental issues they feel strongly about. It gives them a platform to articulate their views through the media of writing, photography or video. Young people are involved in 25 countries worldwide.

We promote the activity to schools through the Eco-Schools Scotland programme and to communities and individuals under the banner Young Reporters Scotland

In February 2016 we hosted the International Young Reporters for the Environment National Operators Meeting in Glasgow.
