Resources for Schools

Resources available to schools to promote waste minimisation

​Sustainability is now a cross curriculum priority in the Australian Curriculum. There are many facets to sustainability, but these can be broadly grouped into four main areas: energy, water, waste and biodiversity. For the Tasmanian EPA, a key factor underpinning these priorities is the promotion of the sustainable use of resources, in other words, minimising waste.  There are several resources available to schools to promote waste minimisation.​

  • Waste Education
    Primary school teaching resources are now available on plastic waste, paper waste and litter.
  • Education Links
    Here are some places to find out more about sustainability at home and at school.
  • Litter Education
    Education is an important tool in managing litter
  • Sustainable Event Guidelines
    The EPA has established guidelines and a checklist for event organisers to assist with planning and holding events in a sustainable manner.
  • Wood Smoke Education
    EPA Tasmania has developed teaching resources for primary and secondary schools about reducing smoke from domestic wood heaters, with the aim of improving air quality.
