Eco-Schools Scotland is part of the largest sustainable schools programme in the world. Here in Scotland the programme is managed by Keep Scotland Beautiful.There are 10 topics to work on including a litter and waste topic.

Litter & Waste covers actions on  litter, dog fouling, flytipping, and graffiti, as well as waste minimisation actions such as recycling and composting. The Litter & Waste Topic has natural overlap with all other topics.

Completing a Green Flag Application is recognised by the Green Flag Award - a visible indication of a school's commitment to Learning for Sustainability and an internationally recognised accreditation for excellence in sustainable education.

Climate Action is a core topic and all applications must include at least three actions per topic as well as at least one litter pick or survey.  

Eco-Schools is one of five programmes operated internationally by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) and delivered by Keep Scotland Beautiful in Scotland.
