The Eco-Schools Programme has since the start in 1993 proved to be a very successful programme. Although the Programme was invented in Denmark to suit the conditions and challenges in Danish schools, the Programme quickly showed to be applicable to schools all over Europe. After the enlargement of FEE to non-European countries, the Eco-Schools Programme was adapted to suit very different conditions. Today, the Programme is very popular in countries such as South Africa and Kenya, where poverty-fighting as added component has given the participation in the Eco-Schools Programme a significant change for the involved schools. Also China with their potential of one million schools has now joined the Eco-Schools Programme. Today, FEE member organisations in 46 countries are working with the Eco-Schools Programme. In Romania “Centrul Carpato-Danubian de Geoecologie” (CCDG) has very successfully implemented the Eco-Schools Programme. The Programme is now celebrating 10 years of existence in Romania. FEE was established as a European organisation back in 1981 by 4 founding member organisations. When CCDG became member organisation in 1999, FEE was represented in 20 countries. Since 2001, organisations from outside Europe started to join FEE, and today we have 62 member organisations representing 55 countries from all over the world.
The Eco-code of the National College “Ioan Slavici”: “ WE ARE ALL CIVILIZED PEOPLE, WE RESPECT NATURE”. Beginning with the school year 2003-2004 we have the status of Eco-School. As the evaluation of our activities took place every two years that is in 2006 and 2008, for our results we got the green flag twice. Our activities take place according to the ecological calendar that is: - 16 September – The International Day of the Ozone
- 22 September – The International Day Without Cars
