AAEE SA environmental education and sustainability taster + AGM

18/11/2023 @ 12:00 pm 4:00 pm ACDT

Inspiration for designing sustainability learning about local forests, plant propagation, bin systems, volunteering & carbon offsetting

Start the afternoon with lunch and a guided walk through the stringybark forest, learning about the ecology, exploring First Nations perspectives and using the citizen science app iNaturalist with David Doherty, David Larritt and Bruce Baker.

Hear from Nick Hauschild, Sustainability Coordinator at St Ignatius’ College, about the processes and challenges of becoming a carbon neutral organisation, and their current emission reduction and student engagement strategies.

We will run a short AGM at 2:15pm, then at your own pace you can network with each other and/or talk to any of our committee experts about the following learning ideas:

  • How KESAB and Wipe Out Waste can support sites with their resource management, and the Education Department’s new bin systems (Jo Hendrikx)
  • Education for Sustainability through a primary Science lens (Debbie Loke)
  • Kaurna Food and Fibre project (Deidre Knight and Antoinette Di Paolo)
  • Volunteering in local parks – how sites can take an active role in bushland management (Amy Blaylock)
  • Masters of Education by Research findings (Bernadette Haggerty)
  • Native plant propagation workshop, plant lifecycles and classification (Deidre Knight, Steve Fuller, Davide Doherty). All participants will be provided with free native plants to take home.
