It is essential that the whole school is involved in, and the wider community aware of, the schools Green-Schools programme.
Schools use all known means of information provision and public relations to tell the whole of their work. These include; school notice boards, school assemblies, school newsletters and websites, school plays, dramas and fashion shows based on environmental issues, letters to businesses and corporations, local and national press, radio and television, St. Patrick Day parades, etc.
As part of this step the schools have to undertake a Day of Action. This day should be designed to bring the school and the local community together to undertake a common task. In many cases the school and the community undertake a National Spring Clean event to clear up a local litter black spot (for the Litter and Waste theme). Some schools will have an Open Day and will invite the local public to attend and offer advice on environmental management.
When providing information on your Informing and Involving step in your application, make sure to include details (and maybe photos) of your Day of Action, as well as copies of newsletters, links to website, a description of your notice board, etc.
