Centre for Environment Education, CEE was created in recognition of the importance of Environmental Education in India’s overall environment and development strategy. The result of a unique partnership between the Govt. and a Non Governmental institution, CEE was established as a Centre of Excellence in 1984. It was supported by the Ministry of Environment and Forests (MoEF), Govt. of India. At the time when it began its activities, CEE was perhaps the only organisation actively engaged in Environmental Education in the country. Later, it was decided to move more from Environmental Education towards Environmental Action Projects for sustainable development. Today, CEE works for a wide range of sectors, target groups and geographical areas. CEE sees a major opportunity in the UN Decade of Education for Sustainable Development (2005-14), to further contribute towards sustainable development.
