Global Citizenship

The Global Citizenship topic is where you can include work on other initiatives like Fairtrade Schools, and Rights Respecting Schools in your Eco-Schools journey.  You might also like to tell us about any fundraising projects for charities like Mary's Meals, SolarAid or Unicef, your school's Shoebox Appeal, foodbank donations or charitable recycling like RagBag.  Lastly, individual awards like The John Muir Award, The Duke of Edinburgh's Award or The Prince William Award are also welcome in this topic.
