Latest news from BHee including a song-writing competition with cash prize, latest Eco-Schools awards, an exciting Twilight for teachers and NEW marine workshops.

Happy 2014 from BHee

We hope you had a relaxing break and returned to school with plenty of 'eco' resolutions for 2014! 

If one of these is to teach pupils about our unique local wildlife, the Biosphere website has the perfect tool: a zoom-able map to locate habitats close to your school. Find out more about the amazing habitats in your local park, woodland, cemetery or beach by booking a Wildlife Workshop with Katie

We're looking forward to another exciting year and to working with inspiring teachers and pupils to make the schools of Brighton & Hove more sustainable. If you haven't been involved in the BHee project before, now's the time to get in touch.

Best wishes
Helen and Katie
