Eco-Schools is one of the five educational programs run by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE). It is an international award program that guides schools on their journey towards a sustainable school environment. The program provides a simple framework to help make sustainability an integral part of school life. Eco-Schools can help enhance the curriculum and get the whole school united behind important environmental issues. The program strives to bring about changes in the behavior of young people and those connected to them so that good habits learned in schools are followed through into homes and communities.
