About Steven England

Steve is an experienced practitioner and guide in both Meditation and Mindfulness for over fifteen years and certified to Teach .b (11-18) Mindfulness in Schools (MiSP).

The Wellness of Being® (WoB) is Steve’s methodology emerging through his phenomenological & arts based Research in Action employing pedagogical, social prescribing (specifically meditation & mindfulness) and biophilic methods for delivering Well Being within the Framework of Sustainability.

The WoB methodology stems from The Wellness of Being Programme an annual rolling programme of events that follow the Sun as it journeys through the seasons allowing us to connect with Nature and find Resiliency within our Self.

Having worked for decades in Information Technology as a technician and project manager both in government and corporate organisations, Steve decided to transfer his skills into Sustainability.

Keenly aware of the limits of technology Steve set out to re-train and rethink for behavioural change within the Sustainable framework.

He has completed the Gaia Education: Design for Sustainability (GEDS), Trainer of Trainers (ToT) and Ecovillage Design Education (EDE) becoming a Gaia Education Certified Trainer in both the Social and Worldview Sustainability Dimensions

Gaia Education was a Key Partner for UNESCO’s Global Action Programme (GAP) on Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) which ran 2015-2019 as a precursor to the current United Nations’ (UN) Decade of Action 2020-2030 to deliver the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

Steve is also a certified Level 3 Forest School Leader

 Steve completed his Carbon Literacy Training with The Carbon Literacy Project  (CL) recognised by the UN at COP21 where it was awarded one of 100 worldwide Transformative Action Programs and is a certified CL Facilitator.

He has since blended his WoB methodology with Carbon Literacy and received CL accreditation for his Carbon Literacy & WellBeing for Organisations

He also developed and delivers the What is Sustainability course? which also blends WoB Methodology.

Steve’s strong interdisciplinary skills to facilitate and consult across many sectors equips him to deliver the behavioural change required for Sustainability Change Agents.
