Keeping it cool - Parent information session

  • St Columba's Primary School 24 Glen Huntly Road Elwood, VIC, 3184 Australia (map)

When it comes to engaging with young people at home about environmental issues, what’s appropriate for their age? How do we broach issues like global warming and the waste crisis without fuelling anxiety? Do we just leave it up to professional educators to do the work for us?

Parents and caregivers are invited to join local educators and students to discuss what’s ‘cool’ when it comes to these pressing global issues. Learn ways to empower young people to make a difference, while feeling positive about it.

Relevant for parents and caregivers of young people aged 0-18 years.

The panel:

Sharron Hunter and Matt McArthur, Education Programs Facilitators – Port Phillip EcoCentre

Gheran Steel, CEO – The Boon Wurrung Foundation

Jenny Whelan, Administrative Director – Albert Park Kindergarten

Sally Plummer, Educator and Sustainability Leader – Clarendon Children’s Centre

Local high school students


The Climate Change Choir, St Columba’s Primary School students
