"The progress of our island will depend on whether out students are well educated" - OPAS

Eco-Schools is an international program that helps schools to integrate sustainability and environmental education into their educational and management models, thus changing attitudes among society. By means of a seven-step program, it takes learning beyond the classroom, spreading knowledge and attitudes of social and environmental responsibility among its participants. It shows children and young people how to identify, analyze and solve environmental and social problems in order to promote sustainable development in their school, community and country.

With the help of this program, children and young people acquire new knowledge and develop their leadership skills as they take individual decisions and actions on a daily basis in their schools. Each student’s immediate family also sees the benefits of the education and training that the student receives and shares. The execution of the methodology also motivates them to win the award for their school and earn the prestige that comes with receiving the “Green Flag”.


Eco Schools is a program that:

  • Combines practical experiences with learning.

  • Develops a sense of responsibility among students and school staff.

  • Involves students in socio-environmental matters.

  • Strengthens teachers’ skills in eco-pedagogy.

  • Enables schools to become sustainable.

  • Includes the local community.

Green Flag Awardees 2023 

After having had our three Academy sessions, we announced the 15 institutions that won the international Green Flag award. During November and December 2023 we were able to visit several schools to give them the flag and certificate, and review their portfolio evaluations. Raise your Green Flag with great pride, being an Eco School is a global honor!

EJ4Climate Grant:                 

Resilient Schools Consortium (RiSC)

We were recently awarded the EJ4Climate grant by the Commission for Environmental Cooperation to adapt a climate change and resilience curriculum in schools provided by the Wildlife Federation. Two Eco Schools in Loíza, Jesusa Vizcarrondo and Belén Blanco, will be part of this process in which capacities will be created to identify risks and develop resilience and adaptation to environmental risks.

Help us reach more schools!
