A: Worldwide project Eco- School Started in 2009, this project is still in progress and its main objectives are to make students aware of the problems our world is facing, to emphasise that waste sorting is the easiest way to reduce gas emissions and save energy. A great number of students aged 8-18 have participated in a wide range of activities, as follows:

Volunteering Collecting waste in nearby forests Planting trees and flowers on the school premises Building tree houses for birds and squirrels in the schoolyard Cleaning playgrounds in parks. Starting a campaign entitled : Donate Paper, Save a Tree!
B: Eco Watch Introduced in 2009, this project is aimed at developing civic competence as well as ecological behaviour in both primary and secondary school students. Consequently, a good number of students (600 students) have been involved in monthly activities which have been designed to encourage a critical view and promote an environmental friendly attitude.

C: Eco Leadership This project is a partnership with Greenitiative and it is meant to continue the work started in the Eco School Project. Its main goals are to raise students` awareness regarding waste sorting in order to save energy and reduce pollution and to persuade them to take action. During the project, participants will go through a number of stages, one of which will be a competition with appealing prizes for the most dedicated ones.
Steps to follow: Identifying an eco leader for each grade Finding available partners ( 5 other students) to form a team Making a PowerPoint Presentation ( using materials provided by Greenitiative) Initiating waste sorting competition Campaigning for waste sorting Giving an account of their activity Rewarding most efficient participants
