What's On - SERRG Waste Project

Bournda Environmental Education Centre (BEEC) is collaborating with South East Resource Recovery Group (SERRG) towards the vision of 'a waste free south east community where sustainability is second nature'. Working together we are creating awareness of the issue society is having with waste, supporting local initiatives, and educating children and schools towards sustainable practices.

SERRG Projects:

  • The Sin Bin is a monthly newsletter updating readers on the Regional Education Program.

This exciting newsletter has links to:

  • existing and new teaching resources for all stages (K-12)
  • good news stories of schools, councils and communities across the region
  • videos and news items from across the world
  • grant opportunities
  • and a calendar of upcoming events
     
  • Waste Excursion Guide - under development.
  • The Pitch Competition is for students in years 9 and 10 to create a 2-3minute film selling the unsellable. Entries for 2014 are now closed, the winner will be announced on the 13 November 2014.
  • In-School Waste Initiative is a program supporting schools in the SERRG council region to improve waste management. Schools that took this initiative in 2014 are: Goulburn High School, Monaro High School, Bombala High School and Snowy Mountains Grammar School.

    • Connect: students from different high schools across the south east.
    • Share: what is happening in and around their schools.
    • Inspire: guest speakers have been invited to talk to students about what they have achieved and that it is possible.
