BUILDING PARTNERSHIPS FOR SUSTAINABLE EDUCATION
The Sustainable Schools Network Limited (SSN) aim to educate and connect school communities to imagine a sustainable future by advocating for collaboration and increasing the understanding and perceived importance of education for sustainability.. Our vision is to advocate for collaboration and increase the profile of sustainability to ensure sustainable futures are possible. A key purpose of the SSN is to ensure sustainable education is embedded in school based curriculum, by organising and/or providing professional development opportunities. Fundamentally, the SSN aims to empower students to become leaders and contributors within our local community by ensuring authentic learning opportunities that are real-world & meaningful.
Get your school involved to be part of a whole-school approach to sustainability education. Featuring events for students, teachers, operational leaders and parents there is an online learning opportunity for everyone in 2020.

Growing Up in Queensland 2020
Time is running out for children and young people to have their say in this year's Growing Up in Queensland project. There are only a few weeks left for those aged 4-18 years to get involved by completing an online survey, submitting an artwork or sending an online postcard. All activities are open until 30 June 2020!
We would like to say a huge thank you to those organisations who have already promoted Growing Up in Queensland 2020 through their newsletters and social media channels. Your commitment to giving a voice to children and young people is greatly appreciated. We look forward to sharing what we have heard from children and young people in your region at the conclusion of the project.
