What is WISE?

WISE is small organisation that can help your school to develop a global outlook and to become more sustainable.  WISE is Jane Talbot and Jacqui Grainger who have many years’ experience working in schools and with other partners in the field of sustainability education in the South West.

WISE believes that we can all live in a more sustainable world.  By equipping young people with the skills, knowledge and values they need we can empower them to care for themselves, each other and the planet.

WISE works by inspiring real life learning. This provides the means by which students can become active global citizens and schools can be the heart of sustainable communities.

WISE is committed to working in partnership with local authorities and organisations to share ideas and promote innovation in sustainability education.
