The Global Search for Sustainable Schools is an exciting new project being run under the Sustainable Lifestyles and Education (SLE) Programme. Nine countries across the world are coming together to run national competitions that will ask students to submit plans for making their schools sustainable. The winning schools will be given grants to implement their ideas from the beginning of 2020, turning their dreams into reality with the support of experts from their country and around the world.
