The Teachers' Environment Network (TEN) are free professional learning events that are run each term to support school and ELC educators, staff and parents to network, share resources and connect to the local environment! A wide range of topics are covered, with a focus on embedding sustainability and environmental education in classroom teaching. Emphasis is on STEAM/STEM and inquiry-based learning with a variety of topics covered such as climate change and ecosystems, habitat improvements for local species and plastics in our oceans and on land.
Our workshops are open to all teachers and members of school-based "green teams" who are motivated to bring the issue of sustainability to the fore in their schools.

Our next professional learning event will be online and tackle a topic that the EcoCentre is asked about a lot: how to tackle waste at school! Come hear from 2 outstanding schools as they speak about their journey to reduce waste to landfill, their successes as well as the learning curves encountered a long the way. We'll also hear from a waste industry expert from Veolia, sharing information on the recycling industry, food waste and green waste (FOGO), E-waste and more. We’ll cover a range of topics from introducing new recycling streams, composting systems, developing a waste-free events policy, and how to integrate waste education into the curriculum!
