School Sustainability Festival

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 & music.

The School Sustainability Festival is now fully booked! We look forward to seeing you there.

The School Sustainability Festival is now in its 14th year and open to all schools!  The theme of the 2019 School Sustainability Festival is Port Phillip Bay.

In previous years students crafted sustainability songs, sung and danced 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.

Free for Green Teams or one class.

Boon Wurrung Foundation Logo The EcoCentre acknowledges the Kulin Nations, including the Yalukut Weelam clan of the Boon Wurrung language group, traditional owners of the land on which we are located. We pay respects to their Elders past and present, and extend that respect to other Aboriginal and Elder members of our multicultural community.
