Living in 2030 Environmental Curriculum

Last Updated on 12 March 2012
The Living in 2030 Environmental Curriculum - an Experiment in Survival

The Living in 2030 Environmental Curriculum challenges students to examine the state of our planet in the Year 2030 if we continue with a ‘business as usual' scenario, and take no action to halt global warming. This program has been designed and developed by Global Green Plan.

The Living in 2030 Environmental Curriculum takes a ‘learning by doing' approach to environmental education. Increasingly student driven, the Living in 2030 activities and projects are designed to encourage students to come up with real solutions to real problems.

The Living in 2030 Environmental Curriculum fosters initiative, responsibility, leadership and teamwork. Students who participate in the Curriculum experience a sense of achievement and empowerment at their ability to make a difference in the face of increasingly frightening, and overwhelming, predictions about our planet. Living in 2030 students also report a heightened awareness and understanding of their community, as the Curriculum encourages interaction between the school, households and the wider community.

As well as learning about the environment, Living in 2030 students come away with valuable skills in the areas of communication (in particular, the internet and website construction), data management, critical evaluation, risk analysis and information technology.

The Living in 2030 Environmental Curriculum is designed for middle school classes (Years 7-10). It also provides extension opportunities for gifted or talented students, and classes that choose to take their 2030 experience further.

The Living in 2030 Environmental Curriculum is currently being taught at Williamstown High School, and is available for implementation by other interested schools.

One concientious omnivore and one vege’s quest to reduce the environmental impact from their food.Both Wendy & Kate love their food.

Kate, a meat eater who loves farmers markets, sees this project as more of a journey: how can she learn to make the changes in where she sources her food and the diet required to reduce her food miles.This blog seeks to list and debunk facts and myths around the best ways to source environmentally friendly food, as well as discuss products that are available around Melbourne’s markets.
