School children participating in these grassroots environmental projects learn skills for sustainable living and develop an appreciation for their local environment.

The program provides a hands-on, curriculum-based environmental education for students, with a focus on strong student participation. The students also learn about the importance of protecting the environment for future generations.

86 schools across NSW will share in more than $300,000 to implement local and practical environmental education initiatives through the 2018 round of the Eco Schools Grant Program.
