Where to: ResourceSmart Schools
Over the last 10 years the Victorian government has invested in making our schools more sustainable. Schools have been provided with crucial support by facilitators from CERES, VAEE and other regional providers who’ve assisted approximately 46% of Victorian schools. In the 2014 calendar year alone the ResourceSmart Schools saved $3.8 million, This comprised of: 1,800 tonnes of CO2-e saved, 17,000 cubic metres of waste diverted from landfill, 243,000 KL of water saved, and 5,500 trees planted.
It has just been announced that there is no further funding for ResourceSmart Schools (RSS) facilitators beyond 30 June 2015. Without on-going support from the program facilitators we fear that many schools will no longer participate fully ResourceSmart Schools. It would be a shame to lose momentum just as this program is beginning to produce such significant results.
