About Sustainable Schools NSW

Sustainable Schools NSW (SS NSW) is managed by the Australian Association for Environmental Education NSW Chapter

Sustainable Schools NSW is a central hub to help schools learn, do and celebrate a whole school approach towards sustainability: on campus, in curriculum and through culture.

We connect school communities through:

  • programs, professional development, resources and delivery providers to support sustainable practices.
  • state and regional sustainability networks to build capacity, share learnings and celebrate achievements.
  • a collaborative interface between educators, organisations, businesses and government entities to foster environmental stewardship across NSW.

Thousands of schools and teachers throughout New South Wales are members of the growing Sustainable Schools NSW network. Join Sustainable Schools NSW.

Sustainable Schools NSW supports the sustainability cross-curriculum priority for the NSW Syllabus and Australian curriculum. Search for sustainability focussed learning resources.

Sustainable Schools NSW is part of the national Australian Sustainable Schools initiative (AuSSI).

Regional projects

Green Leaders

Sustainable Schools NSW is partnering with MIDWASTE Regional Waste Forum to deliver Green Leaders, a student-led waste education program with students and teachers on the mid-north coast NSW. Green Leaders provides real-world learning opportunities for students and educators to take action to reduce their waste and improve their school environment. 

Policy, Curriculum, Research

Remember, doing your bit for the environment is all part of the bigger picture of achieving a sustainable future.
