ECO-UNESCO Clubs Programme
Get in the Club!
The ECO-Clubs programme is a great way to give focus and structure to a group of young people who are interested in environmental issues. It’s free and open to any group of young people taking environmental action or considering environmental issues. It provides a focus for activities and an identity.
