Strengthening Environment Education in School System (StrEESS)
StrEESS-Jammu & Kashmir

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.

CEE continues its association with MoEF after EESS programme. Jammu and Kashmir Board of School Education (J&K BOSE) developed a proposal for strengthening EE in J & K with the help of CEE. The proposal is under discussion and being revised by J&K BOSE to suit the technical guidelines of Ministry. In the process, CEE with the help of the J&K BOSE developed a Status Report of EE for J&K. As J&K was involved in EESS project since 2001, a study was conducted by CEE to review the use of the greened textbooks and trained mater trainers. The State of J&K is still using the greened textbooks and is also going to green the other subject textbooks. The trained master trainers are being utilized by education department and CEE for various EE related initiatives and programmes.
