The ingredients of the curriculum – what goes in and what does not – are being hotly debated at the moment regarding Environmental Education. NAEE is part of this debate, but we need to ensure our advice is ready to roll out, when the Curriculum Reviews are complete.
We are currently building up the resources.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any resources you wish to share.

Earlier this year we asked our members and the members of the NAEE Executive to write letters to their MPs in support of including environmental education in the curriculum. In particular, we wanted to show our support for Aim 5 of the recommendations given by the Expert Panel in their review of the National Curriculum. The suggestion of Aim 5 was to: “Promote understanding of sustainability in the stewardship of resources locally, nationally and globally” and cited examples of “high performing jurisdictions” whose curricula give a high-level reference to sustainability.
