SEEd places sustainability and the environment at the heart of all learning, and learning at the heart of sustainability.

Through learning together  for Sustainability we can build a more equal and ecologically sustainable future for all life on Earth.

We empower; we facilitate; we catalyse to promote the new learning required by all of us to live sustainably.

We know that sustainability (and how to live and work sustainably) is a developing area of knowledge and skills. Our goal is to keep people updated and thinking about good practice. Our policy work aims to share this practice and encourage supportive systems for educators to carry out this important work.

Support SEEd

It’s a scandal how little support and encouragement our education system gives to young people and their learning about sustainability. It is not in the national curriculum, and climate change is only in from GCSEs onwards! What is more, consistently young people have said they want to learn more and do more for sustainability and their futures.
