NAEE has been promoting environmental education in the UK for 50 years, supporting all those involved in its delivery, so that together we can understand and act on the need to live more sustainably in order to protect the future of our planet. In 2018, NAEE received a Green Apple award for its support of environmental education.

Our Curriculum Guides explore opportunities in primary and secondary schools to help young people engage with and learn about environmental and sustainability issues.  They include two reports on how environmental issues feature in the national curriculum.  These are essential reading.  We shall add to our Guides and update existing resources over time.
