The International program of Eco-Schools was developed by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) in 1994, and is is being implemented in more than 60 countries and 50,000 educational institutions. Eco-schools have a system of rewarding educational institutions, in such a way that schools that meet the set criteria and promote environmental care as a lasting value and way of life, receive a charter on the status of the International Eco-School and the Green Flag with the Eco-school sign. The methodology is based on seven steps that certain educational institutions implement according to the individual plan with the help of this program.
