The Summer season has come and gone now, too fast it may seem, but here in the Green-Schools Office we are excited for the new 2018/2019 academic year. Each year our Local Authority partners organise seminars to introduce teachers to the new themes they’ll be working on this academic year. The seminars will be delivered by Green-Schools staff and will talk you through all aspects of the new themes and answer any questions you might have. They’re a great way to meet fellow teachers and exchange ideas! As seminars are scheduled we’ll add them to the list below.

If you wish to attend a seminar please your Local Council’s Environment Awareness Officer, who may be hosting the event. Please note schedule times will be added to the list closer to the dates.
