The Action Learning Cycle (ALC) is the main Enviroschools tool used to help plan and carry out student-led projects. It's also a wonderful tool that can also be used to guide meetings and discussions. 

It enables young people to be empowered to investigate, explore ideas, make decisions, take action and reflect on the changes they have created.

The ALC cycle begins by 'Identifying the Current Situation'.... immersing students in the subject and possibilities - this gives a rich background from which they can then 'Explore Alternatives', then plan, design and 'Take Action'. The 'Reflection' that follows raises new ideas and consolidates learning. 

Enviroschools resources are designed with 'Identifying the Current Situation' in mind.  Activities are offered that help students build up a picture of the current situation before moving into the next stages of the ALC.
