standards of Climate Literacy and Sustainable Practice across Australia.
Children across Australia are demanding change, understanding that the dynamic of decision-making is shifting, and it is people power that will build our sustainable future. Eco Educate embraces this thinking through their development of a comprehensive commitment to a sustainable future. Beyond a program, Eco Educate has produced a unique opportunity to support schools to develop informed global citizens through building strong authentic connections across both primary and secondary school in combination with sought after connections with industry partners and key community organisations.
The company’s ethically driven approach demonstrates their commitment to a positive impact in communities across Australia. With children placed as our current and future custodians, Eco Educate empowers them to positively impact their school, their communities and their futures.
For years we have been working towards building better sustainable practice in our school. It has been a slow process and some things have worked and some have not and we were always brainstorming about how to make more progress. When we had the opportunity to work with Eco Educate we jumped at the chance as we hoped they would help improve and refine our processes, ideas and initiatives by taking them to the next level with a clearer direction. This is exactly what they have done and well above our expectation. Eco Educate has sparked a new energy in our school with simple initiatives making a big impact, specifically Deposits for Change which has been taken on with great enthusiasm by the whole Junior School. With their endless support, it has given the teachers involved confidence for implementation as well as easy access to resources.
The most exciting part is the curriculum aligned units for each year level. Embedding these practices is one of our main goals and Eco Educate is the perfect partnership for this to happen. Katie has been our main contact and has been a wealth of knowledge who is thorough and helpful in all areas. We are thrilled with our progress and can’t wait to see what more we can achieve through using Eco Educate. Bring on 2021!
