Leading Your School Board / District to
Environmental Excellence

Getting involved with the Eco-Schools programme at the school board/district level is a fantastic way to demonstrate commitment to a sustainable future for students, educators, and administrators on a regional scale.


Through membership, school boards and districts have the opportunity to act as leaders for their schools by promoting the Eco-Schools programme as a benchmark for environmental learning and action in Malaysia, while employing certification standards modeled after the international Eco-Schools programme that connects directly to the UN Sustainable Development Goals.


While schools can certify regardless of whether their board or district has member status, the Eco-Schools programme becomes an even more effective tool when boards and districts work together with their schools and take a collective impact approach to environmental learning and climate action.

Developing Environmental Leadership and Rewarding Excellence

EcoSchools certification represents environmental excellence for kindergarten through grade 12 schools in Canada. Participation in the program allows students, teachers, school administrators, custodians, and parents to get a clear picture of their current environmental practices and take action to reduce their environmental footprint.


Our program provides your school with a framework along with curriculum-connected resources, action guides, campaign kits and access to our online platform where teachers, administrators and students can measure their impact. At the end of the year, schools apply for certification and are awarded with a final certification level ranging from Bronze to Platinum.
