local sustainability for the early years

Well done to the team at Yarra Ranges who successfully applied for funding for a partnership grant under the Victorian Local Sustainability Accord for Sustainability in the Early Years project.

The project involves the development, implementation and evaluation of an Early Years Education for Sustainability Framework and a package of tools to use for teaching and training sustainability outcomes for the early years.

It's a great opportunity to spread the Sustainability message in the early years.

The Shire of Yarra Ranges will partner with Knox City Council, City of Melbourne, City of Port Phillip and the Alpine Shire Council.

Project partners also include Early Childhood Australia- Special Interest Group, Early childhood Sustainability, Tracy Young Convenor - advocacy for education for sustainability practices and principles and the Australian Association for Environmental Education.

It's great news for Yarra Ranges and I look forward to providing updates on how the project progresses.
