Sharing session - an invitation to participants...

The 'sharing session' is an invitation for you to participate!

We want to hear about sustainability explorations or initiatives you have led or been involved in at your school/centre. You are invited to create a poster for sharing on the day. If you want some helpful poster making ideas - just click on the site (Don’t feel pressured to create a beautiful poster though, it’s simply a tool to start sharing our successes so we can build our bank of great ideas and our bank of arts for sustainability ideas).


What to bring

In order to follow sustainable practices please bring your own mug to drink from, and a USB to download the handouts and resources from the day.
