Greenrock applauds the initiative by Bermuda Environmental Alliance (BEA) to partner with the US National Wildlife Federation (NWF), and adopt the first two "Eco-Schools" in Bermuda.

After productive discussions with BEA and NWF to collaborate on the initiative, Greenrock President Dr. Judith Landsberg commented "As Greenrock establishes this wonderful program nationally in Bermuda we look forward to building on the knowledge and experience of the NWF and to having Victor Scott and West Pembroke Primary lead the way supported by the BEA and adopted by NWF".

The Eco-Schools program encourages schools to work through 7 steps following a particular 'pathway' or 'theme', such as consumption and waste, or energy. At the culmination of these steps Greenrock can now award the schools the Eco-Schools 'Green Flag'. Greenrock Education Director Abbie Caldas said "We have already started working with a number of public and private schools and the Bermuda College, and we look forward to expanding this program to all the schools in Bermuda".

Successful Eco-Schools are awarded the Green Flag, an internationally acknowledged symbol for environmental excellence.For the past six years, Greenrock's School Roadshow has raised awareness of environmental issues and inspired students to take action – at home, at school and in their communities. In 2009 this developed into a pilot Green School Project with Elliot Primary, identifying significant improvements in the school: electricity savings of 30%, a school produce garden, waste audits and waste reduction, enhanced student-teacher relationships, and various other sustainable practices throughout the school.

Eco-schools are as much about the community, the school's economic stability, and the students' learning environment as they are about the ecological impact. As well as potentially reducing electricity bills, allowing more money to be focused on the children rather than the facility, Eco-schools empower students to be the change agents our world needs to be sustainable by engaging them in fun, action-orientated learning.

Greenrock applauds the initiative by Bermuda Environmental Alliance (BEA) to partner with the US National Wildlife Federation (NWF), and adopt the first two “Eco-Schools” in Bermuda. Eco-Schools is the largest sustainable schools programme in the world and is operated by the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE). The UN-approved Foundation recognized Greenrock last month as the associate member for FEE in Bermuda.
