Best Practice Environmental Education Case Studies

In 2016 EENSW received funding from the NSW Environmental Trust for the project Equipping regional sustainability education networks for creating change. As part of this project, we supported participants to work within their Regional Sustainability Education Networks to develop:

  • A strategic plan for their network outlining their vision, objectives, guiding principles, membership and administration etc;
  • A small collaborative best practice sustainability education & engagement project with network members using $1,500 of seed funding from the NSW Environmental Trust;
  • A case study of the best practice project undertaken by their network.
