All for our environment

Sustainable Development Education

Eco-Schools
Eco-schools is a global program designed by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE). It involves over 50,000 schools in 76 countries. The Foundation introduced it to Morocco in 2006. It educates children aged 4 to 12 on good environmental practices through practical, action-based teaching.
It all starts at school
Eco-Schools is a pedagogical tool, that aims to transform youth into the catalyst for sustainable development the world needs, by involving them in learning about the environment in a way that is fun, practical, action-oriented and open.

From one generation to the next, Eco-Schools produces environmentally-aware people through the acquisition of new behaviors, which are in turn passed on to the next generation.

Eco-Schools follows a practical and progressive approach. Each eco-school adheres to a seven-step methodology, enabling experimentation with simple and effective actions for the environment within the school setting.
Seven themes are addressed, namely: water, energy, waste, biodiversity, food and nature, solidarity and climate change. Eco-School progress is recognized with bronze and silver certificates, as well as the Green Pavilion, acknowledging completion of the entire course.
