The current round for School Environmental Grants for up to $2 000 is now open, closing date 1 March 2019. Schools and preschools within the Adelaide and Mount Lofty Ranges are invited to apply for grants to deliver projects that enable exploration of environmental sustainability in learning programs and management practices.
Using an Education for Sustainability approach, we are looking for projects that build the capacity of a school and its community, leading to an ongoing sustainable approach in one of both of the following areas:
- youth voice; students leading sustainability projects and initiatives
- outdoor learning environments; connecting with nature through biodiversity projects and outdoor learning.
Community Environment Grants are also open, closing date 19 Dec. These grants promote the sustainable management of our natural resources and deliver projects that improve community capacity, awareness and education of the natural resources in our region. For the first time, applicants will be eligible to apply for a grant of up to $5000 or $10,000 (GST exclusive), with projects focusing on one of five categories:
- information, education and training
- coast, estuarine and marine environments
- sustainable living
- biodiversity protection
- water for life.
