Strengthening Environment Education in School System (StrEESS)
StrEESS-Chhattisgarh

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 Chhattisgarh Board of Secondary Education (CGBSE) with the help of CEE has submitted the revised proposal to MoEF. The proposal is for strengthening EE in Higher Secondary Schools of the State. In the revised proposal, Ministry has sent few comments which State is in process of responding. Chhattisgarh being an EESS state, the review exercise on use of greened textbooks and trained master trainers was carried out. Content as well as approaches from the greened textbooks have been used in new textbooks. The master trainers are also being utilized in various EE activities in the State. 

CEE has compiled a report on state of EE in schools of Chhattisgarh with the inputs from CGBSE and SCERT. The Secretary Education has provided a vision note on EE with the report for the national publication on Status of EE in India.
