You, Me and Sustainability Digital Workshop
Have your students join the MoAD Learning team from their own classroom as we facilitate a digital workshop called You, Me and Sustainability.
This program supports students to inquire into how they can create positive change in their classrooms, school or local community. Through discussion and real-world examples students consider simple changes they can make in their every day lives to support sustainability. This is a great workshop to hook students in at the beginning of an inquiry, or support your students’ learning in the classroom.
This 30 minute program is suitable for students in classrooms, hospital schools and distance education settings, especially from Year 2 to Year 7.
- visits special places in the building
- facilitates rich discussion around making positive changes to help the environment
- shares stories about young people making positive changes in the area of sustainability

What technology is needed?
We use Zoom to connect. In the classroom all you need is a device connected to an interactive whiteboard or smart TV. We can also accommodate multi-point connections if your class is learning at home.

Cross-Curriculum Priorities: Sustainability
- OI.1 The biosphere is a dynamic system providing conditions that sustain life on Earth.
- OI.2 All life forms, including human life, are connected through ecosystems on which they depend for their wellbeing and survival.
- OI.3 Sustainable patterns of living rely on the interdependence of healthy social, economic and ecological systems.
- OI.4 World views that recognise the dependence of living things on healthy ecosystems, and value diversity and social justice, are essential for achieving sustainability.
- OI.5 World views are formed by experiences at personal, local, national and global levels, and are linked to individual and community actions for sustainability.
- OI.6 The sustainability of ecological, social and economic systems is achieved through informed individual and community action that values local and global equity and fairness across generations into the future.
- OI.7 Actions for a more sustainable future reflect values of care, respect and responsibility, and require us to explore and understand environments.
- OI.8 Designing action for sustainability requires an evaluation of past practices, the assessment of scientific and technological developments, and balanced judgements based on projected future economic, social and environmental impacts.
- OI.9 Sustainable futures result from actions designed to preserve and/or restore the quality and uniqueness of environments.
