I was once very involved in the European (and wider) project called Eco-Schools. It was once heavily promoted across the UK, but now it is most active in Scotland and Wales where the central administrations consider it significant and useful in promoting community involvement, and understanding the concept of environmental sustainability. Clearly the ‘English’ parliament gives these things lower priority.
Anyway – I was in Swansea not long ago, and spotted an interesting building on a hilltop above the town. Turns out to be a school built when open air education was considered a good thing. On the way to the station I saw it from a different angle, and there was an Eco-Schools flag flying proudly. Excellent publicity for the project in the Principality.
