Green Lab Professional Learning for Teachers

April 22

Teachers in the City of Melville are invited to join Indigenous Elders, scientists and artists for an action packed day focussing on urban canopy and bushland. Start the day with a bush tucker morning tea at Wireless Hill, hear the stories that connect us to place, explore the Indigenous and natural history and then venue to Piney Lakes and get to know the area and how the City has changed over time.

The City of Melville has been working hard since 2017 to increase tree canopy coverage and create greener and more liveable spaces for our local community to improve the health of our urban forest and build climate change resilience. By partnering with the Millennium Kids the City is supporting schools to help foster positive action by young people who care about the loss of trees in our urban areas.

Teachers who attend will:

  • Pitch ideas for change and be in the running for a $500 grant to kickstart their school Green Lab initiative.
  • Support and funding for a relief teaching day, after the Professional Learning Day, to take their ideas from concept to action plan.

This workshop is free and has been supported by City of Melville.

Green Lab, a Millennium Kids Citizen Science program, is funded by the Western Australian Government’s State Natural Resource Management Program.
