Councils 2 Schools Network

The Councils to Schools (C2S) Network managed by MWRRG provides resources, advice and assistance to councils to help them support their local schools deliver the ResourceSmart Schools program and other waste reduction activities.

C2S meets quarterly and its members include ResourceSmart Schools consortium representatives, waste, council environmental and sustainability education officers and not-for-profit waste education service providers. In addition to the networking meetings, members also receive regular email updates about school-related events, waste and sustainability resources.

C2S events are usually held in conjunction with our two other education networks (Ed Net  and CLEAN) to create combined education network event days.

To join C2S, request presentations from recent network events or for more information please email Samantha Ackland or  phone: 8698 9805.

 

ResourceSmart Schools

One of the best ways to support schools (and access a wealth of resources) is through the ResourceSmart Schools program.

ResourceSmart Schools is a Victorian Government initiative that helps schools benefit from embedding sustainability in everything they do.

ResourceSmart Schools also has annual awards to encourage sustainability through recognising the activities that schools, teachers and students undertake. Along with boosting the school’s profile, the awards offer prize money and resources.
