School Sustainability Festival

The School Sustainability Festival is an annual event organised by the Port Phillip EcoCentre to provide local schools and their communities an opportunity to celebrate and acknowledge their environmental and student leadership achievements within City of Port Phillip (CoPP), Bayside City Council (BCC) and beyond.

Now in its 17th year, the School Sustainability Festival is Victoria’s longest running school sustainability festival celebrating and empowering student leadership for our environment.


After two years of running this event online, we are excited to announce the return to an in-person celebration at the St Kilda Town Hall and EcoCentre on September 1, 2022.
