Environmental Education Network

In accordance with the determinations of the Council of the Saxony State Foundation for Nature and the Environment, responsibility for connecting the environmental education institutions in the Free State of Saxony was transferred into the remit of the foundation. As a result of the second Saxony environmental conference in 2001, the decision was made to set up the Saxony Network for Environmental Education as a platform for exchange of information and experience, plus qualification and professionalisation and support of the public work of the environmental education institutions.


With the support of the German Federal Environment Foundation, the Service and Coordination point for the network at the Academy of the Saxony State Foundation for Nature and the Environment was set up on the 1/1/2002. The aim of the Service and Coordination point was to build up the network with involvement of all interested environmental education institutions and professional environmental educators.


The network started its activity on the 24/6/2002 when it chose the regional centre as a focal point of the network, and also chose the Network Council.


Since then, there have been regular meetings in the 5 regions, where they advise environmental educators and jointly develop plans. There are a number of developmental training events for environmental educators, organised by the Academy of the Saxony State Foundation for Nature and the Environment.


A website has been set up at to publish the Saxony environmental education institutions and to provide information about the network. This shows all the environmental training institutions and what they offer, and allows the visitor to select by location, date, topic, target group and type of event. In addition, this website has a comprehensive service area with a pool of speakers, business partners, employment exchange, exhibitions for hire, literature recommendations and information about every aspect of environmental education in Saxony.


Individuals and organisations active in the area of environmental education are can take part in the network, and we would like to invite you to do so.
