SEEd are delighted to have been accepted as Key Partners on the UNESCO Global Action Programme for Education for Sustainable Development.

SEEd are working in Priority Action Area 2 and will be looking at how, through collaboration and other approaches, we can bring about the transformation of learning and training environments to embed a ‘Whole School/Institution Approach’. Our work as part of this project will involve gathering evidence around Whole School Approaches as well as our own focus on the evidence of the impact of Sustainable Schools.
