We are committed to building eco-enterprises that inspire positive environmental action in schools and communities around the world.

LocoSoco help foster sustainable learning in our students to become the future environmental experts by creating an easy framework that will engage all members of the community and help to build a sustainable future together.

Our goal is to create a sustainable future…one school at a time.

LocoSoco and Social Enterprise International partners through the SPEED project is a movement of schools committed to building a sustainable future by working with parent, carers, local businesses and the wider community.

LocoSoco breaks down sustainability issues into easy-to-understand concepts that engage all stakeholders.

Eco-Enterprises teach and develop eCommerce businesses owned by students, teaches the tools to engage the community and fundamentally teach the students to teach their parents about sustainability.

Start Up

The LocoSoco & SPEED School program incorporates a wide range of teaching concepts and activities, including the design and management of local eco-enterprises located on school property.

The Eco-Enterprises offer students a chance to develop enterprise skills and become involved in local commerce while generating profit with purpose and teaching others about sustainable practices.
