Green Schools

The education secretary, Alan Johnson, has outlined plans to make all schools “models of sustainable development in their communities” by 2020.

“Young people are keenly aware of, and highly motivated by, environmental issues. In many ways they are ahead of adults in their attitudes to recycling and conservation. Channelling this enthusiasm helps raise achievement and improve behaviour and could save money as well as addressing big issues such as climate change – it really is a win-win solution.”
