Tasmania is recognised by the United Nations as a Regional Centre of Expertise in Education for Sustainability and EfS Tas members are able to submit projects for our endorsement. By sharing initiatives and lessons learnt as we work collaboratively towards social, cultural, economic and environmental sustainability, we aim to support each other to help overcome the sustainability challenges that our region faces.
Each initiative is judged (by the Steering Committee) against criteria relating to:
- the strength of the sustainability message,
- its alignment with the EfS principles and UN sustainable development goals,
- how well it was delivered,
- the availability of learnings that could be useful for others wanting to replicate this initiative,
- the ongoing social, cultural, economic and environmental benefits for the target audience.
Before you can submit an initiative for endorsement you must become a member of Education for Sustainability Tasmania.
If your project is successfully endorsed, you can use the endorsed-logo on your activity information and the wording “This project has been endorsed by Education for Sustainability Tasmania, a United Nations recognised Regional Centre of Expertise on Education for Sustainable Development”.
