Relaunched in 2008 under the new charity name ‘SEEd’, Sustainability and Environmental Education seeks to drive forward Education for Sustainable Development into the mainstream of the education system – schools, colleges, universities, teachers and their communities.
SEEd does this by being an umbrella organisation for national Non-Government Organisations interested in environmental Education for Sustainable Development and the environment. We do this by being a national membership body that facilitates wider stakeholder engagement processes, promotes shared learning and develops cross sector partnerships.
SEEd are now offering a variety of services that include:
- facilitating learning workshops for members;
- organising events, such as the National Sustainable Schools Conference, to highlight the state of environmental education and education for sustainable development in our schools.
- offering an engaging and interactive website that provides a gateway into SEEd’s work, member organisations, networking opportunities and current ESD news; and
- the research into issues and practice that will help everyone e.g. understanding teachers needs, or a baseline of practice.
