Event description

Description

The 2019 Steps to Sustainability Conference will explore and showcase how schools are implementing curriculum and connecting their students to local catchments including Port Phillip Bay. Workshops and presentations will be aligned to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals 14 Life below Water and 15 Life on Land as well as the ResourceSmart Schools program especially Water and Biodiversity modules

Join over 200 teachers, parents, local government officers and educators to experience a wide variety of school sustainability examples and experiences including state, catholic, independant, ELC, Primary, Secondary, metro and regional schools. Presenters are from schools who have recently started on their sustainability journey through to those who have been the leaders for numerous years.

This conference is suitable for all participants interested in school sustainability and the health of Port Phillip Bay who would like to learn real life experiences from other teachers and educators.

The conference will use a variety of the Zoo's educational spaces so be ready for walking and for glimpsing wildlife the general public don't normally experience.

Organisers encourage you to use sustainable transport opions (details on the booking page). 5-hour City of Melbourne parking is available and it will be the responsibility of the participant to move their vehicle as required.

Our event is waste wise.
