Eco-Schools is an education programme for sustainable development and a UNESCO recognised label for schools. Many schools throughout the world commit to reduce their ecological footprint and make sustainability part of their school life. For Swiss schools, the programme is developed by J’aime ma Planète.
The programme helps the school community take concrete measures to move towards an environmentally respectful school functioning. The students are encouraged to take an active and central part in the process. In parallel, the programme accompanies teachers in the integration of education for sustainable development in their daily teaching lives, while fulfilling the objectives set by the school programme.
Eco-Schools reunites the entire school community around a common project and encourages the collaboration between teachers, non-teaching staff, students and their parents.
