ISB is proud to announce our membership of the Eco Schools project. Eco Schools is an organisation that consists of 49000 schools in 64 different countries. The key aim of Eco Schools is to “Ensure young people have power to be the change for sustainability that our world needs by engaging them in fun, action-orientated and socially responsible learning.”
They achieve this through their 7 step framework where schools: Form an Eco-Committee; Carry out an Environmental Review; Make an Action Plan; Monitor and Evaluate; Link this work to the Curriculum; Inform and Involve the whole school community; Produce an Eco-Code.
Schools can focus on a wide range of themes which include: Biodiversity and nature; Climate Change; Energy; Global Citizenship; Health and Wellbeing; Litter; School Grounds; Transport; aster; Water.
More information can be found out about Eco Schools on http://www.ecoschools.global
What this means for ISB.
We will be creating student led committees in Primary and Secondary who will decided how they think ISB can have more positive impact on the environment. These ideas will then be taken to an executive committee led by students made up of representatives from both sections of the school, teachers, administrative staff and parents. This committee will then develop an action plan identifying our top priorities we will start work on improving our school!
This initiative involves the whole school community - students, staff and parents - working together, so we value your input.
