Children's Pledges of Hope for World Environment Day
Conservation Volunteers Australia and Tangaroa Blue joined forces for this project to connect with our young people and provide a public platform that acknowledges their ideas, voices and pledges.
The hands on workshops included over 1,000 students from years 2 to 6 students from our local primary schools. Our team provided a space for students to identify and problem solve how we can all engage to reuse, reduce and recycle in order to lessen the impact we have on our environment including our waterways and reef.
Each child came up with their own personal pledge which they embedded on a recycled fabric flag.
These will be proudly displayed at EcoFest 2019 at the Tondoon Botanic Gardens. The flags are an inspiration to the rest of the community who will be encouraged to join in on the day with their own pledge.
Thank you to our project partners Conservation Volunteers Australia and Tangaroa Blue. This project was Kindly Funded by Gladstone Healthy Harbour Partnership.
