Inspire and educate the next generation by modelling sustainability at school.
We’ve created a suite of resources to help schools across Australia to get solar and become more sustainable, including case studies and downloadable guides, all free for your school to download and use. Let us know if you’d like to be a featured case study!
What is your school’s footprint?
ClimateClever provides an app for schools to calculate their carbon footprint, track annual emissions, learn how to reduce their carbon footprint and compare results with other schools. The app is available discounted or free to schools in Mosman, the Northern Beaches and Lane Cove via local council partnerships. Get in touch with your local council for more information.
Large schools can save around $114,000 p.a. and small schools $12,700 pa. This free council-run program supports schools from start to finish.
