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

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 Goa Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education have submitted the proposal to MOEF with the help of CEE. The Ministry has requested Board to revise the proposal. CEE had meetings with officials from Board to revise the proposal. The revised proposal was submitted to MoEF. The Ministry has sent few comments on the proposal which is being discussed at the Board. Goa was involved in EESS project and have greened the textbooks and have trained the master trainers in the State. An assessment study was conducted on the use of both the components in the present context. Government of Goa by policy has adapted the NCERT textbooks from the last academic year and have introduced in all levels of education in a phased manner.

CEE has compiled a status report on EE in schools of Goa with the inputs from Education Directorate, Council and Board. The report was approved by the Education Secretary and the vision note on EE for Goa was also provided for the National publication.
