Centre for Research in Education and the Environment (CREE)


Welcome to the website of the Centre for Research in Education and the Environment (CREE), at the Department of Education, University of Bath.

CREE is the UK's leading group of researchers whose work focuses on educational issues relating to the environment and sustainability. Academics, research fellows and students have interests ranging from economics and management, to science and geography, and philosophy and literature, amongst many other themes and issues. We are collaboratively linked to key academics, policy makers, practitioners and researchers in the UK and in similar research centres in the USA, Canada, Australia, South Africa and continental Europe through a wide range of formal and informal links, and through work with environmental and sustainable development education networks, associations and organisations like NAAEE, CEE UK, and NAEE UK.


The journal, Environmental Education Research, is based at CREE.

We run an international mailing list, env-ed-research@jiscmail.ac.uk, on research news, topics, issues, events and inquiries.

The Centre also provides web hosting to the American Educational Research Association's Special Interest Group on Ecological and Environmental Education.


Our mission is, through research and scholarship, to promote practical and theoretical understandings of how education in its widest sense can be focused on environmental and sustainability issues.
