The FECEI Green Positive initiative is aimed at its member schools. It invites schools to audit their businesses and identify areas where they can reduce, reuse and recycle, involving all their stakeholders: managers, teachers, admin staff and, of course, students.
As they say in their explanatory information, ‘It’s about being more respectful towards our environment and aware of it, in order to ensure a healthier world for future generations’. Where better to do this than in schools?
A simple handbook outlines a list of possible actions that can be taken and offers a plan for putting the actions into practice. A handful of schools throughout Spain have already signed up and are piloting the scheme. FECEI award these schools with a Greenpositive hallmark and they in turn, become examples for other schools to follow.
Scott Markham, president of FECEI, has kindly translated the handbook from Spanish to English to share with us here at ELT Footprint. We’re hoping it can help other schools and organisations who might be thinking of creating similar schemes.
