Sustainable Schools TeachMeet

Page history last edited by ev clawson 4 years, 8 months ago


On the 2nd March, SEEd and Leicester City Council are holding the Sustainable Schools Conference in Leicester City Hall from 9am-5pm. The conference features a fantastic line-up of workshops, keynote speakers, and stall hosts from across the environmental, global learning, and sustainability spheres. 


The Sustainable Schools TeachMeet is your opportunity to come along and hear from some of these people about how you can help to introduce sustainability into your own classrooms, as well as having the chance to share your own thoughts and ideas.


Expect drinks, nibbles and possibly even a prize.  


When and Where? 


Wednesday 2nd March from 5.30pm-7pm


The venue is Room G01, Leicester City Council, City Hall, 115 Charles Street, Leicester, LE1 1FZ 


What is TeachMeet? 


Learn something new, be amazed, amused and enthused. TeachMeet is an informal gathering for those curios about learning and teaching. Anyone can share great ideas they've trialled in their classrooms, ask important questions or simply sign up to take part in learning conversations.
