Steps to Sustainability Conference 2018

The 2018 Steps to Sustainability Conference will explore and showcase how schools are implementing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals at their school through presentations and workshops delivered by teachers.

Join over 170 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 and early learning centres 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 and ELC sustainability who would like to learn real life experiences from other teachers and educators. The Conference streams will include presentations and workshops on the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

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 options (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.

The event is waste wise.

Cost is $70 + GST and online booking fee. Includes morning tea, lunch and entry to the Zoo.
