Schools For a Sustainable Future
|whats new whats old about us our stories get involved home|
Dear Principal/Head of Senior School,
We invite you to select two students to attend our national, residential student conference for Years 10-12: "Creating A Sustainable Future". We particularly encourage you to select students who have a deep concern about the future of our planet, and who have a background in student leadership or community involvement or have a flair for journalism, creative writing, the visual or performing arts or other forms of communication. The conference is only open to school delegates. It has been planned by a team of students and educators from all sectors* and has already attracted the interest of Principals and other professionals across Australia.
Research shows that many young people envisage a future of barren, overcrowded landscapes dominated by towering apartment buildings, and where Nature is seen only in museums. In this conference young people will empower each other to create a far more hopeful and positive image of their future and to translate this into dynamic responses for sustainable, constructive change in their local and global communities.
is a conference with a difference!
Enclosed are a flier, information about the organisers, brochures and application forms. Please consider sponsoring one or two of your students to participate in this important conference.
Application forms and a non-refundable deposit of $100 per person are due by 31 March, 2002. The full fee is $550 per person, with an early Bird discounted fee of $500, if paid in full by 31 March.
