Eco Schools - Travel Challenge

Eco-Schools is a recognised International award scheme, rewarding and accrediting schools who have made a commitment to continuously improving their environmental performance. It is also a learning resource, raising awareness of environmental issues through activities that link to curriculum subjects.
The aim of the Eco-Schools programme is to make environmental awareness and actions an intrinsic part of the life and ethos of the school and also the wider community, both for pupils and for staff.

Eco Schools - The Travel Challenge
Translink and Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful joined forces again this year to get schools involved in this Eco-schools project and in particular to look at the Transport theme. Schools that have successfully completed all the elements of the programme are awarded the 'Green-Flag'. This award has now become a well-recognised Eco-Label and has to be renewed every two years.
The challenge raises awareness on the impact of transport on the environment and demonstrates the benefits of using sustainable transport. Challenge resources provide schools with a range of engaging activities to complete.
