Brighton & Hove environmental education


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.

BHee is funded by Brighton and 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.

Some important changes we want to tell you about

A message from Bryan Deakin, Brighton & Hove City Council:

“I am delighted to announce a further 2 years support of the Brighton and Hove Environmental Education (BHee) programme by the Brighton and Hove County Council (BHCC). However, due to current financial limitations, the funding support will be half of the previous input – please be aware that this will impact upon the BHee reach and capabilities from the 1st November 2017.  Through November and December Resource Futures have been working with Sussex Wildlife Trust to redevelop the offer to maximise the support capabilities within the margins of this condensed support.  We are very much looking forward to the new revised approach, which will launch in January 2018.”

What the changes mean for your school

Resource Futures and Sussex Wildlife Trust are extremely gratefully to BHCC and CityClean for the continued support of the BHee programme.  Although a smaller budget will reduce our reach and capacity, we have been going through an exciting period of change and re-development through November and December. We very much welcome your input into the BHee development process and encourage you all to complete our surveymonkey questionnaire, which will be sent out in the new year.

A revised BHee programme will launch in January 2018, so please bear with us and keep an eye on the website for updates from January.

Going forward, the monthly BHee newsletter will become a termly news bulletin and sent to your school eco-co-ordinator by email.  For additional, local information on sustainability issues, you can sign up to receive the Living Coast newsletter.

And going forward, requests for advice and guidance for Eco-schools work will be centralised through themselves.

For any enquiries regarding the BHee project, please contact Katie
