'Our mission is to integrate into formal education and lifelong learning the knowledge, values and skills needed for a sustainable way of life through networking, projects and support.'
Manchester Environmental Education Network, or "MEEN" as it is more commonly known, is dedicated to supporting teachers, organisations and individuals working to promote environmental education and Education for Sustainability. To achieve this we offer opportunities for people to share good practice, run training events, deliver INSET, run projects, provide contacts and information and encourage partnership working.
MEEN's current projects are:

Greater Manchester Growing Schools Hub
Forest Gardens for East Manchester

You can access The MEEN Directory to find out which local organisations can support your school, good places to visit and information about funding opportunities. A calendar of events is also available on-line. Send us your event details and we can add them to the calendar.
Our schools section hosts a catalogue of curriculum resources, including lesson plans and activities to help put sustainability in the curriculum. We also host the resources from the former Sustainable Schools site.
