The Eco School information pack contains 10 sections outlining specific school areas that can be assessed by students for meeting the needs of all its users, the extent to which they use and abuse environmental resources, and the aesthetic contribution they make to the locality. Using this initial research, the document helps students design a school which is user-friendly, conservation conscious, and aesthetically pleasing. Specific sections examine the following areas: overall school design; the school's entrance, grounds, classrooms, performing arts areas, indoor sports facilities, library, and dining room; waste and recycling; and energy conservation and lift design. Additionally covered are issues common to all school areas, such as access for people with disabilities and energy conservation.
