Green Adelaide education officers mentor youth action groups to develop plans and projects within their schools to build their capacity as change agents.
Mentoring can also involve hands-on sustainability workshops, and networking activities with other schools. The Green Adelaide education team provides ongoing school support to embed the groups’ projects into the school culture and processes, and develop student leadership, public speaking and communication skills.
Green Adelaide also has numerous resources that can help student groups further explore sustainability.
Green Adelaide runs the Youth Environment Council of SA, which represents youth across the state and supports them to take action on sustainability and environmental issues of concern in their local area. This program empowers these young people to be drivers of change and active citizens.
