Eco-schools Programme Works

New research reveals for the first time the beneficial results of Keep Britain Tidy's Eco-Schools 18-year programme encouraging schools to put environmental education at the centre of the curriculum with children having a powerful voice in what happens.

The research by Kids Industries mirrors findings from Ofsted, the DfE and Scotland. It reveals more than enhanced environmental awareness. Far-reaching personal and social benefits have accrued, leading to telling improvements in well-being, especially self-confidence, awareness of others and ability to build relationships. Behaviour, motivation and cognitive skills have all improved. "Keep Britain Tidy" is a charity. For more information visit www.keepbritaintiday.org/eco-schools
