Since 2011 the University of Tasmania has enabled over 1050 students to undertake and participate in initiatives that deliver operational sustainability outcomes for the University while earning academic course credits or via paid competitive internships. A number of awards have been won for the initiatives.
Tasmanian Students Against Racism is a group of students who came to Australia as refugees and migrants from a diversity of countries and personal circumstances. In collaboration with TasTafe and A Fairer World they share their stories through the Living in Between Program, to create a better understanding about why asylum seekers, refugees and migrants settle in Tasmania and how it feels to live in a new country.
Each year, global leaders in environmental thought provide a free lecture in Hobart. The Richard Jones Memorial Lecture, as it is known, is hosted by the Richard Jones Memorial Lecture Committee, the Student Environmental Law Society and Sustainable Living Tasmania.
The Range Extension Database and Mapping project, more commonly known as REDMAP is a fantastic University of Tasmania and IMAS collaboration. It provides people with the opportunity to share sightings of marine species that are ‘uncommon’ to their local seas.
It’s official! Education for Sustainability Tasmania is ready for action. Thanks to everyone who came to the launch, sent well wishes or helped us generate support. We celebrated together via the University immersive rooms, linked through cyberspace. Thanks to our speakers who believe so strongly in the role of education in fostering the knowledge, skills, values and worldviews necessary for people to act in ways that contribute to more sustainable patterns of living.
