Strengthening Environment Education in School System (StrEESS)
Since 2005, CEE is working 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 Sikkim State Human Resource Development Department has submitted a proposal to MoEF with the help of CEE. The Ministry has sent comments on the proposal and the department has submitted the revised proposal to MoEF again. The discussion over some activities is going on. CEE has compiled a status report of environmental education in schools of Sikkim with the help the State Boards of Education. The Secretary Education has given his vision note for EE with the approval to the status report of EE.
The State of Sikkim was also involved in the EESS project, thus review of present status of the utilization of greened textbooks and trained master trainers was done. Sikkim is using the greened textbooks in the State.
