Swansea Environmental Education Forum (SEEF)

Project Aim

 The SEEF network provides a wealth of knowledge, skills and experience.  It can offer a range of  services and resources to schools and youth groups.

 

What does the project entail

Swansea Sustainable Schools Scheme (SSSS) is intended to help schools make step by step    

progress in Education for Sustainable Development and Global Citizenship (ESDGC) through the curriculum and the way the school is managed.  It is designed to complement and support other existing national schemes such as Eco Schools, Healthy Schools and Fairtrade Schools and will help schools in Swansea strive for high standards in a crucial aspect of contemporary education in Wales.  This scheme was set up with minimal paperwork involved in applying for an award. Up toJune 2015 there were 40 awards to 33 schools.

SEEF also offers a Directory of people and organisations that can support schools delivering ESDGC. These include workshops, talks and assemblies on various aspects of ESDGC as well as fieldtrips and outdoor education organisations.  For all contact details go to
