Schools For a Sustainable Future

Earth Sustainability Conference Inc.
In an intellectual and artistic environment, students will develop critical, constructive and creative reflections and actions to these complex and crucial issues. Their work will be enriched and extended by exposure to the diversity, beliefs, dreams, gifts and experiences of the presenters and the other participants.
This event is currently actively supported by the Australian Catholic University, the Brotherhood of St. Laurence, Schools for a Sustainable Future, Mater Christi College, Xavier College and the Dioceses of Melbourne and Sale Catholic Education Offices.
We are unique in that a group of students from all school sectors in Victoria are playing a key role in every stage of the planning and management of the conference. These students come from Avila College, Cobden Technical College, Koonung Secondary College, Lowther Hall, Mater Christi College, Methodist Ladies' College, Star of the Sea College and Xavier College. This ensures that the issues and activities are relevant to the young people who will participate, and that they know that their ideas, responses and beliefs will be listened to, respected and where possible, acted upon. It also ensures that that the conference atmosphere will be one of inclusion, acceptance, encouragement, support and co-operation. Students will be able to build leadership skills, their sense of worth and the belief in themselves as shapers of the future. They will be able to return to their schools and communities empowered to contribute in informed and effective ways.
