Course description

The purpose of the day is to increase teacher confidence as facilitators of a whole-school student environmental initiative through the Eco-Schools Australia platform.  

During the program participants will:

  • Conduct an ‘eco-snapshot’ in a real school environment, addressing four areas: energy, waste, water and biodiversity. 
  • Discuss and share practical strategies to maximise whole school engagement and success. 
  • Examine strategies for using school eco-snapshot data to facilitate students through the process of developing an action plan in line with the Eco-Schools Australia framework. 


Costs will vary depending on catering expenses and presenter expenses (if required).


Onsite at your school or a nominated school, as this trianing course utilises the school grounds.
