The Cleaner Greener Schools accreditation provides opportunities for students, teachers, leadership teams and/or principal teams to follow an action plan that targets areas such as LITTER, WASTE, ENERGY, WATER and BIODIVERSITY. It will allow participants to be involved in a range of initiatives generating educational experiences and social awareness.

Participating schools receive formal recognition (1 to 5 star rating) for their environmental credentials.

  • To build further knowledge, skills and more advanced attitudes to issues relating to litter and waste
  • To inspire students and teachers to explore their school’s choices
  • To develop the capacity and networks of regional and remote teachers and inspire those involved to lead through actions
  • To align with the Australian Curriculum in Maths, Science and Sustainability

  • of issues surrounding litter, waste, recycling and other sustainable practices
  • of how waste and litter impacts the school and wider community
  • of actions they can take to reduce waste and litter and improve practices in other areas
