School Sustainability Festival 2020: Celebrating youth leadership in climate and biodiversity

The 15th Annual School Sustainability Festival was held online for the first time in November 2020, uniting schools across Victoria to celebrate inspiring actions our youth are taking to create a more just and sustainable world -- even during a pandemic. For further information please contact the Port Phillip EcoCentre at ecocentre.com/schoolsfestival or schools@ecocentre.com The festival was proudly sponsored by the City of Port Phillip and Bayside City Council. This project was funded with support of the Lord Mayor's Charitable Foundation.

School Excursions: showcasing our outdoor classroom activities

Port Phillip EcoCentre’s Excursions offer something special and unique that can only be achieved in an outdoor classroom. It enables students to connect to the world around them using their heads, hands and heart - intellectually, physically and emotionally.

The power and transformative nature of that connection can be seen every time we conduct an excursion, whether with students in Prep or in Year 12. Annually working with over 4,000 students, we have the privilege of seeing and hearing the students' joy, wonder, and fascination with the natural world and the myriad of species within it.

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.

Education

Our schools and ELC programs allow students to connect to their local environment, especially Port Phillip Bay, St Kilda Botanical Gardens and Aboriginal Cultures and history. Students will be empowered to take sustainability action within their school, community and at home.

Our programs and excursions are linked to outcomes from VEYLDF, Victorian Curriculum and ResourceSmart Schools.
