The #2020sustainabilitysymposium was originally planned to be delivered in person, across two-states, four venues and over seven days. In response to COVD-19 we will deliver the event online. Please work with us as we make the necessary changes and strive to deliver a meaningful learning opportunity.TICKETS
The Sustainable Schools Network Limited are proud to present our second symposium, the 2020 Sustainability Symposium. This online event will ignite souls and inspire change. Presented will be a whole school approach to addressing sustainability in educational contexts by providing learning experiences for students, teachers, operational leaders such as principals, business managers and/or heads of maintenance/cleaning, and parents. Addressing the global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) provides the ‘glocal’ context for the event, as we focus especially on SDGs 11, 16 and 17. Building on the success our inaugural event in 2019, the 2020 Sustainability Symposium will deliver educational experiences that will ensure schools can meaningfully deliver the cross-curriculum priority sustainability whilst also designing a visionary future.

Legends like Jaimie Cloud, Damon Gameau, Luka Lesson, Erfan Daliri, Christine McDougall, Larissa Rose, Samantha Morris, Alison Sammel and Cam Mackenzie will take to the screens to inspire, inform and help schools and their communities positively impact their local community. The SSN are especially excited about the half-day introduction to education for sustainability that Jaimie Cloud, from The Cloud Institute, will facilitate. Jaimie is a pioneer in the field of education for sustainability and is internationally recognised for her contribution to the field. This is not to be missed if you are committed to embedding sustainability in your lesson plans.
