GREEN LEADERS

The Green Leaders education program

The Green Leaders program has been extended into 2021, and is being delivered by Australian Association of Environmental Educators (AAEE) NSW. So far more than 30 schools and early childhood centres from Taree to Coffs Harbour have undertaken fantastic Green Leaders projects including introducing and improving recycling systems, reducing waste from school canteens and enhancing onsite composting of food scraps.

Opportunities are available for mentoring in schools from Nambucca, Bellingen and Kempsey Shire Councils in 2021, contact jane.grebert@sustainableschoolsnsw.org.au if you are interested in participating.

The Green Leaders Program:

    • Helps schools to be ‘Green Leaders’ by providing mentoring support for students, educators and schools to develop a student-led waste reduction project utilising the Sustainability Action Process
    • Provides resources and professional development opportunities to support educators and schools in education for sustainability
    • Provides support in developing a School Environmental Management Plan (SEMP).

The Green Leaders is delivered by the Australian Association for Environmental Education NSW which also manages Sustainable Schools. For more information go to sustainableschoolsnsw.org.au Sustainable Schools NSW aims to connect environmental educators with relevant resources, interactive lessons and a like-minded community to help spread the important message of sustainability for future generations.
