The REEB is the Environmental Education Network in Brittany, which has been working for 25 years to defend and develop environmental education in Brittany.

A strong need for mutualisation between actors is at the origin of the creation of the REEB in 1992. The network now brings together structures (associations, communities, schools, auto-entrepreneurs …) and individuals (animators, teachers , environmental professionals, parents …) all invested in nature education and the environment.

It aims at:

  • innovating and supporting environmental education

  • networking actors, pooling knowledge, experiences and know-how in environmental education

  • encouraging participation in the development of environmental education

  • supporting environmental education structures and community life

  • communicating, promoting and transmitting environmental education information
