Resources for Schools

​​​​​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 available and EPA Tasmania offers teachers advice and guidance on waste issues.
  • Education Links
    Here are some other places to find out more about sustainability at home and at school.
  • Litter Education
    ​​​​​​​​Managing litter is everyone’s responsibility. Managing litter starts with education and awareness about the litter problem.
