Environmental Education

Our kids are our future – let’s help them appreciate our beautiful environment and learn how to protect it. Sutherland Shire Environment Centre runs three very special environmental education projects benefiting kids of all ages: Nature & Learning, Speaking 4 the Planet and our Scholarship Program.

Nature and learning

Did you know that spending time in nature improves your children’s health and benefits their learning?

We can show you these and many other benefits for children of spending time in nature. Contact us to organise a Nature & Learning session at your school or group.

You can also check our online map to find out natural areas that you and your kids might not yet have explored.

This project is being run in conjunction with Sutherland Shire Council. For more information please contact:

Speaking 4 the Planet

We want our kids to be able to speak up about their beliefs. How great would it be if they could speak up for the planet?

Speaking 4 the Planet is a world-first project that encourages high school kids to express themselves through public speaking, drama, video and art competitions.

In the Kids 4 the Planet project, we’re taking the project to primary schools.

So successful has this project been, that educators are now introducing it to schools in different parts of Australia as well as overseas.

If you’d like to get involved with this project, please contact:

Convenor: Phil Smith

You can see some of the extraordinary work kids have contributed to this project at the Speaking 4 the Planet website and on Facebook @speaking4theplanet
