Sustainable Schools Alliance

Sustainable Schools WA has been co-designed and developed in partnership with other government agencies and non-government agencies that provide significant resource and program support to schools in education for sustainability. These organisations are collectively referred to as the Sustainable Schools Alliance (the Alliance).

Individual Alliance partners support one or more of the twelve action learning areas e.g. Water Corporation: Water; Millennium Kids: Biodiversity; Transport and Air; Waste.

A number of Alliance partners provide funding opportunities for schools including:

  • Department of Water and Environmental Regulation Waste Wise grants for the development of waste minimisation projects.
  • Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries Partnership Acceptance Learning Sharing (PALS) grants to promote and advance reconciliation.
  • Department of Transport Your Move Connecting Schools Grants can support schools' endeavours re walking, cycling and scooting to and from school.

A full list of current Alliance members can be found on the Sustainable Schools WA Information Sheet.
