300 kids converged on the Sustainability Learning Centre in Hobart on Tuesday for the annual Kids 4 Kids conference.
Students from from 12 schools around the city, learning from industry leaders and fellow students: skills, knowledge and inspiration for a more sustainable future.
We ran two workshops, preparing students to demonstrate the patterns we see today in our landscape that show us how the land was managed before European settlement – in the most sustainable way possible.
Kids love hearing about this heritage, and being inspired by the 60,000 years of innovation in Australia. It’s our duty to fill in what was missing in our own education, to re-present what those early settlers saw and what it actually means about the incredible food systems they saw.
The Centre at Hobart College, Mt Nelson is a fantastic resource – with passionate staff and great opportunities for students to engage with holistic approaches to architecture, gardening, landcare, viewing history and geography, and the list goes on!
Jenny Dudgeon and her peers do a great job, and we appreciate being invited to join in the fun!
