Brighton & Hove environmental education

Welcome

The Brighton & Hove environmental education project (BHee) supports local schools to embed sustainability into school life. Use this site to find out more about the range of FREE workshops, visits and resources available to state-funded schools across the city.

Please note that in the light of the current Government COVID-19 advice, we are currently not offering BHee workshops or visits. We will continue to review the situation as new guidance is issued.

BHee response to Covid-19 and school closures

Whilst schools are closed, we are still busy at BHee preparing eco-resources for schools to use when pupils return to school. We are still keen to hear from you, and if you have any ideas or requests for resources, please email us.

We know how important the natural environment and nature connection is to maintaining children’s mental and physical wellbeing.  We are preparing weekly ‘Curriculum Ideas for Outdoor Home Learning’ bulletins which we hope schools will forward to their families to support their home learning as well as using in school with key-worker children. You can find the latest one here. Through this, families can enjoy learning together, either in their gardens or whilst exercising in line with government guidance.  For further details, or to be added to the email distribution list, please email us.

To continue with Eco-School work, families might like to investigate the new resources #EcoSchoolAtHome, https://www.eco-schools.org.uk/category/news/ with a different Eco-School topic being explored each week.

BHee is funded by Brighton & Hove City Council as part of their commitment to helping pupils and teachers learn about, and take action to protect, The Living Coast our unique local environment and a designated UNESCO Biosphere.

For any other enquiries regarding the BHee project, please email us.
