Encouraging and promoting sustainable schools
March 3, 2015
The Australian Sustainable Schools Initiative has a holistic approach to support schools and communities to live and work more sustainably.
AuSSI encourages staff, students and community members to improve the the management of energy, waste, water, landscapes, products and materials whilst integrating these activities into the curriculum to teach the key elements of sustainability.
By taking part in activities designed to teach, students achieve a better understanding of the environment in which they live. They are better equipped with the knowledge and skills to help build a more sustainable future and have the motivation to do so.
