Sustainable Schools

A sustainable school aims to prepare students for a lifetime of sustainable living through their teaching, their fabric and through the example of their daily practices.

A school built on the core principles of sustainable development will encourage care:

  • Care for oneself – our health and wellbeing
  • Care for each other – across cultures, distances and generations
  • Care for the environment – near and far

 Eco-Schools provide a great model for starting your journey to sustainability.  Their website has resources and advice on how to get everyone at school involved.

 There is more information about how to become a sustainable school and the eight sustainable schools doorways with contacts in each county council department for further advice and support to get your projects up and running at www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/sustainableschools
