The international program eco-school is run in 40 countries worldwide. In the Czech Republic 210 elementary schools and secondary schools are integrated. The pupils strive to minimize and divide waste, save energy and water and improve the school ambience and the school environment. They enjoy lessons with topics about environment. They are the basis of the school work team of the eco school, form their own eco code, analyse the present situation at the school in the named areas and suggest improvements which they try to solve themselves. The program is destined for the entire school and is conducive to a cooperation between teacher, pupils, company staff, school management as well as the inhabitants. Successful schools successfully complete the process of certification and wind the international title, flag and logo of eco school.
