Strengthening Environment Education in School System (StrEESS)


Since 2005, CEE is working closely with State Departments of Education (SDEs) across India towards Strengthening Environment Education in School System (StrEESS). Under the project, CEE initiated discussions with various State Education Departments. CEE has facilitated the development of proposals by various State Departments of Education focusing on the action plan for various activities such as developing / facilitating implementation of the EE curriculum, orientation of text book writers, development of text books, development of teaching-learning materials, teachers training etc.

The Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education with the help of CEE has submitted the proposal to Ministry which was revised based on the comments from MoEF. Two rounds of revision were done and it was submitted to MoEF. Presently, Board is in the process of resubmitting the proposal as per the latest comments of the Ministry.

Maharashtra was part of EESS project, CEE did a quick review study to understand the use of greened textbooks and trained master trainers presently. CEE has compiled a report on State of EE in Maharashtra from the inputs of SCERT and the Board of Education. The Secretary Education has approved the report and has given the vision note on EE for the national document.
