Teacher and Practitioner Event

Understanding Environmental Education in Secondary Schools: invitational seminar


Date: Monday 30th April 2018

Venue: Committee Room 4, City Hall, The Queen's Walk, London SE1 2AA



King’s Environmental Education Research Group invites you to a one-day seminar to discuss what we know and what we need to do about environmental education provision in England.

The seminar emerges from the growing importance for an environmentally literate society whilst recognising that there are contrary pressures and trends, which could undermine future provision. This is a critical time for environmental education in England and, if we are to make progress, policy needs to be informed by both research and the views of established practitioners from across the sectors. To this end the seminar aims are:


  • To disseminate emerging findings from a recent research study which explored the views of secondary school teachers and staff of subject-related institutions concerning environmental education.

  • To prioritise guiding principles for the development of environmental education in secondary schools in England and generate ideas on how these might be achieved.


The seminar participants will include secondary school teachers, environmental educators, staff from learned societies, subject associations and researchers working in environmental education. Numbers will be limited to around 35 people. Although this is an invitational event, please do pass on this invitation to interested colleagues.


Registration (and refreshments) will commence at 10.00am
