EfS Public Forum

An afternoon with a panel of some of the states most experienced sustainability educators  shared their stories and experience. We found how sustainability can empower your students through authentic hands on learning and connect your pre/school community to the world and a more sustainable future. This opportunity offered support to build  skills and confidence as well as establishing networks to promote EfS in our schools.
Thank you to all those who attended and stayed tuned for two followup workshops and tours in 2019.

World Environment Day Fair June 2018

The theme for WED is BEAT PLASTIC POLLUTION – If you can’t reuse it, refuse it.

AAEE participated at the WED Fair at the Adelaide Showgrounds. Our stall promoted a great initiative, BRINGING BACK the BUTTERFLIES. This program gives  opportunities for residents and schools in the Port Adelaide and Enfield Council to plant butterfly attracting plants in gardens and roadside verges. Already 60 residents and several school have expressed an interest. Eventually the program will create interest in the wider community and with government support we expand throughout SA. During the weekend Early Education for Sustainability SA and AAEE SA members members kindly donated their time at the stall promoting their programs.
