What is Your School Doing to Become Eco-Champions?

Why not showcase what you already do

or get involved in your area?

Suggestions:

  • Removing weeds from a local bush or stream
  • Keeping your school free of litter
  • Cleaning up the beach
  • Recycling at your school
  • Making Compost or feeding worms

If you are already doing one or more of these

  • Communicate what you have done /found out – Infographic / Poster
