Greening Melbourne

In line with the global trends in education towards cultivating critical and creative thinking, collaborative skills and dispositions, leadership and entrepreneurship that speaks strongly to living and thriving in our era, ELC teachers embraced a teaching and learning program around education for sustainable development with the over-arching provocation of ‘Greening Melbourne’. The children were challenged to problem solve and communicate their ideas of what a green city might look like. The resultant exhibition sheds light on their innovative ideas around green roofs and vertical gardens on city buildings; even the arts centre spire growing green tendrils. They also had innovative ideas for re-usable shopping bags and individualized ‘Eco-Hero’ T shirts that would spread the message of ‘Greening Melbourne’.
