Green-Schools, known internationally as Eco-Schools, is an environmental education programme run by An Taisce in partnership with local authorities. It promotes long-term, whole-school action for the environment.
There are approximately 300 Dublin City Council schools registered with An Taisce Green-Schools. Many of them having already achieved Green-School status and proudly fly the Green Flag outside their school.
Following the award of their first Green Flag for the Litter & Waste theme, schools renew their Green Flag award every two years by working on a new theme: Energy, Water, Travel, Biodiversity and Global Citizenship.
If you are thinking of becoming involved in the programme it is recommended that you contact Dublin City Council's Green-Schools Officer who will be pleased to assist in the implementation of the programme in your school.
