12th Annual School Sustainability Festival

Event date: 
Friday, 15 September 2017 - 9:30am

Don't miss the School Sustainability Festival, now in its 12th year and open to all schools!  This is a fantastic day filled with workshops, awards and fun. Connect your primary or secondary students to inspiring leadership and practical sustainability ideas through a variety of 20 minute student-led workshops, Aboriginal Cultural activities, food and music. The event is free for green teams or one class.

The festival is proudly sponsored by Cities of Port Phillip and Bayside Councils and runs from 9:30am - 2:30pm on Friday 15 September.

In previous years students crafted sustainability songs, sat around a smoking fire with Boon Wurrung Foundation educators, scooped for aquatic mini-beasts at the pond, harvested from the EcoCentre's productive garden and discovered amazing plants in the St Kilda Botanic Gardens. Awards and prizes were given to all the amazing sustainable schools who attended.

We can help you with ideas for your students to run a student-led workshop.

Did you know that it's a great day of professional learning for you too?  You will be inspired by schools, meet other teachers, and be recognised for the sustainability champion that you are.

It is easy to take public transport - we are near trains, buses and trams.  Please ask us if you need advice
