Eco-Schools Noticeboard

The Eco-Committee is responsible for sharing news about your school's Eco-Schools work with the whole school and wider community and one of the ways they will do that is through an Eco-Schools Noticeboard.  This should be in a central location, visible to everyone in the school.  You could also have a noticeboard in your community for example in a shop, a church or community hall.

Your noticeboard should include:

  • Details of who is on your Eco-Committee so that non-members can contribute ideas.
  • A copy of meeting notes or minutes.
  • A copy of your Eco-Schools Action Plan.
  • Details of current projects and how to get involved.
