Become a More Sustainable School

In order to build a sustainable world it is essential that young people are taught how to make sustainable choices. It’s all about securing their future after all!

"Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” Brundtland Report (1987) ‘Our Common Future’

The good news is that being sustainable is normally cheaper, cleaner and healthier than being unsustainable.

OASES can help your school to review your current practices, from school energy use to school travel, to see where you could be more sustainable (and hopefully save you money in the process). Compile your own, unique package of support or choose from the following services:
