MWKTK – only 3 months to go!
Guess who’s coming to dinner!
School presentations – craft, drama, games and more!
During Term 2, Ally was busy getting out and about visiting schools who will be presenting at the Melbourne Water Kids Teaching Kids Conference. With 38 presenting schools, there is a great range of topics and activities being planned.
Here’s a quick snapshot to get you excited!
Meet the sustainability experts
We are pleased to announce that schools attending MWKTK will have the opportunity to participate in Sustainability Tours at University of Melbourne in the afternoon break on Monday 24 October. Places are limited and schools must sign up to the tours prior to the day (more information will be sent out to schools attending the conference). Some of the highlights that you might see include:
- 6 Star Green Star Design building – Melbourne School of Design
- A green oasis in the middle of the campus – System Garden
- How their food digester helps to deal with organic waste on a large scale
There will also be a sneak peak of Melbourne Quarter with Lendlease. The Melbourne Quarter is a new development on Collins St and is being designed as a 6 and 5 Star Green Star buildings. A limited number of schools have the opportunity to check out the display suites to see what will make this development green.
Every year we have an amazing army of volunteers who help out at MWKTK. Volunteering can be a great way for tertiary students to gain experience and make connections with environmental organisations.
Superstar sponsors and supporters
Our schools will be in some great company this year with all of the sponsors and other supporting organisations that help to make the MWKTK Conference great!
