Urban biodiversity is becoming increasingly important, as research shows that cities play a vital role in biodiversity conservation and management. Protecting and enhancing biodiversity also supports the health and wellbeing of communities and can contribute to effective climate change adaptation actions.

How St Joseph's Primary School saved $20,000 when installing a raingarden

St Joseph’s students joined hands-on catchment care to raise $20,000 through Living Water Workbees, allowing them to install rainwater tanks and a raingarden of indigenous plants, funded through the Victorian Government’s Port Phillip Bay Fund. 85% of the water used in St Joseph’s Primary School (Elsternwick) is now supplied from their tanks; and during heavy rain, stormwater is slowed and filtered by the gardens before flowing to our Bay.

Tomorrow's Leaders for Sustainability

Tomorrow's Leaders for Sustainability (TLfS) is a program where an EcoCentre educator will work with the same group of students (up to 25) for a whole term, guiding them through sustainability curriculum, leadership activities, sustainability projects and spending time helping them investigate their local environments. 

Our Educator will work with the school's contact teacher to confirm the sustainability topic for your TLfS and to develop the term-long planner.
