Global Citizenship

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, foodbank donations or charitable recycling. Lastly, individual awards like The John Muir Award, and The Duke of Edinburgh's Award are also welcome in this topic.

The Global Citizenship Topic has some natural overlap with Climate Action and Health & Wellbeing.
