- Education resource pack with training in its implementation
- Inquiry-based learning by design
- A real world context for academic learning

The programme is highly adaptable; allowing teachers to work collaboratively within a sustainability context and achieve subject specific learning objectives across all curriculum levels.
We are looking for school principals, teachers and educators all over Aotearoa that would like to be involved in our Education Programme.
