How to Conduct an Environmental Review

This video will explain what is involved in an Environmental Review, and the different ways you can conduct one in your school including in our Online Application System, and PDF template.

A full playlist of Eco-Schools guidance videos can be found on our YouTube channel. 

Conducting an Environmental Review will enable you to set realistic targets and measure your success.

The results from your review will help you focus your ideas and can be used as the basis of your Action Plan. Once you have completed the review, you should be able to identify which aims and actions to focus on over the course of your journey.

The Environmental Review should be carried out once for every Green Flag journey to support your work.
