Welcome back to the new Green-Schools year! Every year, in partnership with local authorities, we host seminars for teachers in locations across the country. These one-hour seminars are focused on introducing teachers to new Green-Schools themes and are a great place to meet Green-Schools and local authority staff; get information on the theme you’re beginning this year and meet fellow coordinators from your locality.

As seminars are confirmed we will add them to the list below. Please note that some local authority areas may not hold seminars this year and that all seminars are subject to change. If you have any questions about your local seminar or the Green-Schools programme in your school please contact us and we’ll be happy to help.
