COVID- 19 UPDATE
Given the current situation / swift shift to Alert Level 4, we have to postpone this event. We will reschedule this event in due course
Are you a teacher or educator who is keen to help your school and your students embrace a culture dedicated to climate action? Does the idea of sustainable behaviour patterns for life appeal to you? Or maybe you’d like to be the person who transformed the way your kura/school or kōhanga/early childhood centre thought about and dealt with waste?
Well, thanks to funding from the Ministry for the Environment, Sustainability Trust is holding a free 1-day workshop to help you do this.
This workshop is part of the Your Sustainable Schools (YSSN) Train the Trainer programme.
What you will take away from this workshop:
- Knowledge and skills to roll out a waste reduction plan specific to your school or centre
- Strong connections with other like-minded people in your community
How your school or centre benefit:
- Better recycling systems and lower rates of contamination
- New or improved methods to deal with food scraps
- Empowered students and teachers driving a culture of climate action at school, at home, and in the community
Why this is important:
There’s no denying that students care about climate change and want climate action. Colmar Brunton’s Better Futures Report for 2020 (which included the views of 13 to 17-year-olds, for the first time) backs this, stating climate change, sustainability and waste remain the key concerns for New Zealanders.
People want government and business to be a part of the solution, and we believe that there is a great opportunity for schools to be a part of this movement too.
Get in quick as there are only 25 spots at this workshop.
Not in the Wairarapa? We are hosting these workshops nationwide. Head to the Sustainable Trust's website for more information.
