It's the idea that has more than 700,000 Aussie kids talking.

“If we learn about how we can care about the environment, then we can help make the earth a better place.”

That’s a quote from one of the 700,000 students who have participated Cool Australia curriculum activities – and it’s proof the initiative is working.

It’s a year of action and a week of celebration, committed to teaching kids how to help create a sustainable future.

Recycling, composting, reducing waste and creating veggie patches are all part of the fun for participating schools.

Here’s how you can get involved.
