The Sustainable Schools Network are educating and connecting school communities to imagine a sustainable future. With half the world’s population under 30, school environments are microcosms of the larger community that create safe opportunities to experiment with leadership, change making and innovation for a sustainable future. Education touches nearly everyone, and the sector has a significant footprint, with over 9500 schools in Australia.
Our discussions with schools tells us they do not feel well-equipped to integrate sustainability into programs or operations, due to a lack of prior training and limited professional development opportunities. A finalist in the 2020 Banksia Sustainability Awards, The Sustainable Schools Network helps fill that gap, by engaging school communities to reimagine education.
