Eco-grants Available for Sustainable Projects
Tuesday, 4th February 2014 at 8:15 am

Grants of up to $2000 are up for grabs to help schools, TAFEs and CITs get environmental projects off the ground.

The grants are part of the Teachers Environment Fund and judges will be looking for a well-thought out project with environmental benefits and also include teaching sustainability.

Since its launch in 2008, the Teachers Environment Fund has distributed $312,000 to more than 100 schools and TAFE/CITs.

"We believe teaching sustainability is as important as practising it. The more our next generation know how to look after the world now, the more we can all look forward to later,” Teachers Mutual Bank Chief Executive Officer Steve James said.

“Through this programme, we are helping teachers bring their sustainability projects to life.

“It’s a great way to get your students out of the classroom while keeping them totally engaged.”

Applications open on Monday, February 3 and close Friday, April 11, and must be from the teacher leading the project.

Applicants must also be a member of the Teachers Mutual Bank and teach in a public school, TAFE or CIT in NSW, Australian Capital Territory, Western Australia and Northern Territory.

In 2013, the Teachers Mutual Bank funded 25 projects in schools across Australia, reaching a total of 19,000 students and 1,458 teachers for various initiatives such as sustainable gardens, native tree planting, indigenous creeks and worm farms.
