Education is the key to lasting project success and a tangible cultural change in the way we view and manage our environment. The Kids Teaching Kids conferences have been held around Australia for the last 21 years and we are thrilled to be able to bring everyone together for a face to face event (pending Victorian Chief Health Officers guidance around COVID-19).
The 15th Melbourne Kids Teaching Kids Conference will allow students to look at a whole catchment of environmental issues. This event will also allow for the development of cross-state and cross-curriculum materials, processes, presentation materials and networks of professionals and teachers interested in environmental education and natural resource management in general.
The objectives of the 2021 Kids Teaching Kids Conference are:
- To build on the existing successful Kids Teaching Kids program to deliver a comprehensive education peer-teaching program
- To increase environmental and sustainability literacy within schools across Australia
- To establish a solid understanding of the threats to the environment with a view to their protection by generating action
- To provide young people with the opportunity to decide how they will be heard, now and into the future
