1 What s your role? It will take input from a number of people to make your Eco-committee a success. Use these cards to discuss the various roles and work together to decide who will take on which job. Once you re all agreed, attach your photos to the Meet your Eco-committee poster and pop it up on your noticeboard to tell the rest of the school what you re up to! Who will do what? An Eco-committee can have as many members as you like, you ll just need to all agree to attend regular meetings and commit to work together to deliver the projects you agree on. To ensure your Eco-committee has a good structure, it is best to allocate roles. By following the steps below you will find out more about the key roles and learn how to decide who will do what. 1. Read the roles to get a feel for what being the Chair, Head Co-ordinator, Communications Manager, Treasurer or a Project Partner involves. 2. Place the job description cards out on a flat surface, so you can see the side with the big, bold words written on them. Using only the words showing, can you figure out and all agree which card reflects which role? 3. Turn the cards over and discuss each role and its responsibilities in more detail. Are you surprised by any of the tasks listed? 4. Which role appeals to you? Think about the skills you have that could help you in that position and be prepared to discuss these with other members of the Eco-committee. Are you organised and energetic? Do you prefer others to take the lead? Do you have a particular interest in wildlife or recycling? 5. Before you volunteer for a role, think about if you will you be able to commit to it as well as fit in your learning and other activities. If everyone is very busy you could share the role. 6. Get talking and agree on the structure of your Eco-committee! You may need to all say the positions you re keen to do and open it up to a vote (ask a teacher to help organise this if you want). And remember you could swap roles each term so everyone gets to have a go. You may not be familiar with all of the words in the job descriptions if you want a helping hand check out our glossary at to find out what they mean. WHAT S YOUR ROLE?

2 Get prepared Once you ve agreed who s taking responsibility for which job, you need to ensure everyone is ready to get to work. Remember to visit regularly for new activity updates and top tips! We ve also prepared some templates that will help you run your Eco-committee. Good luck from the Green Schools Revolution team!

3 The roles Read through the job descriptions below to get an understanding of the various roles. There are others, these are just to get you started! If you already have various Eco-committee roles, do any of your existing roles match these ones? Could you spread responsibility or involve others? This is just a quick introduction to the roles see the job description cards for more information! Chair Every Eco-committee needs a Chair and we re not just talking about something to sit on! The Chair is the person who leads the meeting, helps everyone make decisions and ensures each meeting runs to order. It s a really important role that requires a combination of skills. You need to be really interested in eco/green issues and will need to have a few ideas about how you could make your school more environmentally-friendly. Don t forget, other Eco-committee members will also have good ideas, so you need to be a good listener. You need to think about the positives and negatives of an idea and be willing to try things out. You also need to be organised. The Chair is expected to be at every meeting and should encourage other Eco-committee members to attend too. Whilst leading the meeting, the Chair needs to be firm but fair, to help the Eco-committee achieve their objectives. Head Co-ordinator The Chair needs someone to support them at Eco-committee meetings. You need to attend all meetings and take the minutes, so you need to listen carefully and write or type quickly! You should also be a good communicator not only do your minutes need to be clear and concise so that everyone understands them, you need to record all the main points. You need to be really organised as another part of the role is to co-ordinate the Project Partners. THE ROLES

4 Communications Manager If you re a natural communicator, love writing and talking, and are full of new ideas about how to promote the Eco-committee, then this is the role for you. Your jobs is to shout about the Eco-committee s work this could be writing articles (stories) about projects for the school newsletter, giving Eco-committee updates in assembly (which will make you practice your public speaking) or interviewing people on important issues and reporting back at Eco-committee meetings.

Project Partner Are you interested in eco issues? Are you a team player who likes getting things done? You ll attend all meetings, take part in discussions and suggest ideas. You need to be a good listener and not get upset if not everyone likes your idea this time you ll get your chance. You re also a person who makes things happen, which could see you working with teachers and pupils on different projects e.g. digging an eco-garden, protecting wildlife, talking about green issues in assembly or running a competition. You need to be quite confident when talking to people but don t worry too much, it s always good to work in a pair or as a team to get things done. Treasurer Are you good at keeping an eye on money? Do you have great attention to detail? Your Eco-committee will need a budget (it is up to the Headteacher or Governors to say how much it is) and your role is to keep a close record of how much has been spent and on what. You will provide a budget update at each meeting and will help the Chair make decisions on what the Eco-committee buys. You can even apply to Green Schools Revolution for grants to fund projects!
