Local Support: It Takes a Village
We thank Centennial Foundation and Sirius Point for generously donating to the Eco-Schools Bermuda programme this year. These donations make possible the work we do to support local schools as they take the steps towards sustainable action.
The Eco-Schools Programme also has community support through our delivery partners.
For each of our ten sustainability pathways we have local experts that volunteer their time to assist in teaching within the topic, developing and implementing action plans, and monitoring the change the project has had. The delivery partners work closely with the school’s eco-clubs and stand as a source of knowledge and someone to look up to.
Within our Health and Wellbeing pathway the Bermuda SPCA provides a course for students to learn compassion for animals, their peers and also themselves. In our Marine and Coast pathway the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Science (BIOS) involves the students in real-life underwater research projects to learn more about the environment. For our Waste and Litter Minimisation pathway, Government Waste Management provides context to how we manage our waste on island.
The Eco-Schools Bermuda programme is so grateful for community members like these.
No one person can save the planet on their own, it takes the whole community to work together and we greatly appreciate this.
