The information from the review is used to identify priorities and create an action plan, which sets realistic targets to improve environmental performance.
The data gathered from the environmental review will highlight the environmental issues that the school needs to address. The EkoSkola committee will now need to go through and prioritise these environmental concerns. The sections marked Action needed, Action to be taken and Cost involved (refer to the Environmental Review Checklist) can serve as discussion primers as well as good indicators for items to be considered in the formulation of the action plan.
The action plan consists of a series of timetabled targets aimed at achieving the goals identified by the environmental review. The action plan should identify deadlines, persons responsible for the actions and (if possible) how the actions are related to the curriculum.
Schools should aim to achieve >75% of the results of their stated action plan.
