CTOUCH Joins the Eco-Schools Programme as Proud Supporter

CTOUCH has joined Eco-Schools Netherlands as a proud supporter of the programme. Eco-Schools is the largest global sustainable school programme, actively engaging students in thinking and actions that promote environmental awareness. Eco-Schools is a programme of the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE), world's largest environmental education organisation.

The Eco-Schools programme

At present, 59,000 schools in 68 countries participate in this programme, which originated from the United Nations conference on Environment and Development in 1992. It emphasises the importance of engaging children and young people in the worldwide effort towards sustainability.

In seven steps, students examine their schools and undertake actions to enhance sustainability - whether it's saving energy, reducing waste, or creating a greener schoolyard. Schools achieving the highest standards can earn the international certification for sustainable schools, known as the Green Flag.

Remmelt van der Woude, CEO of CTOUCH, expressed his enthusiasm for the partnership, stating: "At CTOUCH, we believe in empowering the youth to be stewards of our planet's future. Joining Eco-Schools aligns with our commitment to making a positive impact and instilling a sense of environmental responsibility in the leaders of tomorrow."

The Eco-Schools supporter programme bridges the gap for schools eager to make their education and buildings more sustainable by connecting them with tools and services. By partnering with supporters like CTOUCH, Eco-Schools facilitates the exchange between demand and supply in the pursuit of sustainable education.
