Steps to Sustainability Conference 2019

The 2019 Steps to Sustainability Conference  will showcase how teachers are using sustainability to support the Victorian Curriculum and how schools are implementing the ResourceSmart Schools program and United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals.

Join over 200 teachers, environmental educators and local government officers to discover how to connect students to life on land and below water including local waterways and Port Phillip Bay. Presenters will share real life experiences from schools that have recently started on their sustainability journey through to those who have been the leaders for numerous years.

Key note speakers:

  • Arron Wood, City of Melbourne Deputy Lord Mayor and Kids Teaching Kids Director
  • Summer Howarth and Cheryl Laks, Zoos Victoria

This conference has been designed especially for people working on school sustainability projects and curriculum initiatives. Enjoy a day at the Zoo, meet other teachers and get lots of ideas to take back to your workplace.

Teachers will receive a participation certificate acknowledging VIT professional development hours.
