The Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE)
is an international environmental education programme that provides a framework to guide educational institutions on a sustainable journey that becomes an integral part of campus life.
This programme is an ideal way for RNC to embark on a meaningful path towards improving its environment in both the College and the local community while at the same time having a life-long positive impact on the lives of young people, their families, College staff and local authorities.
At RNC, the EcoCampus Committee members are from staff and student bodies and the Committee usually meets on a fortnightly basis.
Specific Committee responsibilities and activities include:
introducing new ideas to improve the environmental sustainability of the College
reviewing the College’s environmental impact (in terms of: waste and litter, energy, water, biodiversity, climate change, food and transport)
keeping an action plan up to date
monitoring and measuring progress towards planned targets
linking EcoCampus activities to curriculum work
informing and involving the wider community with the programme and the themes
producing, and regularly reviewing, an Eco Code which represents the College’s commitment to the environment.
Examples of activities students may be asked to undertake include:
developing ideas and actions to help the College become more environmentally sustainable
reviewing achievement of actions resulting from EcoCampus Committee activity
becoming an Environmental Ambassador to encourage students to engage in surveys/ eco-based activities
contributing to tutorials regarding eco-based activities
apply for the Green Flag award and be prepared to escort visitors from the FEE EcoCampus review team around the campus to showcase improvements since the introduction of the programme
working with SMT to update College environmental (and other) policies to reflect the work of the EcoCampus Committee.
