The East Waste Schools Program is a year-long program of waste education for schools, tailored to the school community and calendar.
The 2024 program focus will be: Food waste reduction and diversion.
The cost of the program is fully-funded by East Waste for one school per Council each year.
Green Adelaide Education officers support early learning centres, schools, TAFEs and Universities to embed sustainability principles into their learning and management practices, linking them to the Australian Curriculum or Early Years Learning Framework.
'Take the Pledge' commenced in Unley Council in 2016. It was developed after KESAB staff attended a 'Community Based Social Marketing' course. The course looked at ways we can support communities to foster sustainable and healthy behaviours. We have adopted these learnings and applied them to this program which has seen excellent change in waste management behaviour in The City of Unley.
