Green-Schools, known internationally as Eco-Schools, is an international environmental education programme, environmental management system and award scheme that promotes and acknowledges longterm, whole-school action for the environment.
Water is the third theme of the Green-Schools programme and is sponsored by Irish Water. The aim of the Water theme is to support schools in introducing and implementing a sustainable water programme and raising awareness of and engagement in related issues.
