The Foundation for Environmental Education is partnered by some of the world's foremost organisations in the fields of education and the environment. These illustrious partners include UNESCO, the UNEP, UNWTO, ISESCO, YMP, Earth Charter, the GAP and eTwinning.
Recognised by UNESCO as a world-leader within the fields of Environmental Education and Education for Sustainable Development, our strength comes from our members who share our convictions and execute our programmes with great efficiency on a daily basis. Hand-picked by FEE for their dedication and outstanding ability, it is these local organisations who make FEE the community-focused entity that it is today.
The Earth Charter is an ethical framework for building a just, sustainable, and peaceful global society in the 21st century. It seeks to inspire in all people a new sense of global interdependence and shared responsibility and is centrally concerned with the transition to sustainable ways of living and sustainable human development.
The main aim of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) is to contribute to global peace and security by promoting international collaboration through education, science and culture in order to further universal respect for justice, the rule of law and human rights along with the fundamental freedom as enshrined in the United Nations Charter.
The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) is an agency of the United Nations that coordinates its environmental activities, assisting developing countries in implementing environmentally sound policies and practices. Its activities cover a wide range of issues regarding the atmosphere, marine and terrestrial ecosystems, environmental governance and green economy.
In April 2015, FEE signed a Memorandum of Understanding with The International Foundation for the Young Masters Programme (ISYMP) for the promotion of overall sustainability awareness and the educational platform TheGoals.org on sustainable development.
TheGoals.org is a platform which can be accessed on any phone, tablet or computer. Through it, all the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will be available as an educational resource for FEE programmes. At the beginning of 2016 all the SDGs will be available as courses and challenges, ready for students to engage with and work on together with other students from across the globe.
The Foundation for Environmental Education has become a Strategic Partner of the EAUC and Eco-Schools International is the key contact. Run for its Members, the EAUC works with Educational and Company Members and Strategic Partners to drive sustainability to the heart of universities, colleges and learning and skills sector providers.
The Global Action Programme (GAP) on Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) seeks to generate and scale-up ESD action. It is intended to make a substantial contribution to the post-2015 agenda. The overall goal of the GAP is to generate and scale up action in all levels and areas of education and learning to accelerate progress towards sustainable development
eTwinning offers a platform for staff (teachers, head teachers, librarians, etc.), working in a school in one of the European countries involved, to communicate, collaborate, develop projects, share and, in short, feel and be part of the most exciting learning community in Europe.
YouthMundus is a new, environmentally conscious global short content and music festival, specifically designed for the world’s youth and inspired by the SDGs, which is taking place 14-24 November 2019 in Rome, Italy. Three FEE programmes (Eco-Schools, YRE, and LEAF) will be involved in the festival.
