'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.
