The Green Leaders program has been extended and is being delivered by Australian Association of Environmental Educators (AAEE) NSW. So far more than 30 schools and early childhood centres from Taree to Coffs Harbour have undertaken fantastic Green Leaders projects including introducing and improving recycling systems, reducing waste from school canteens and enhancing onsite composting of food scraps. Opportunities are available for mentoring in schools from Nambucca, Bellingen and Kempsey Shire Councils, contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in participating.
The Green Leaders is delivered by the Australian Association for Environmental Education NSW which also manages Sustainable Schools.
