INVITATION TO PARTICIPATE IN ECO CHALLENGE AUSTRALIA

 

Hello Teachers,

 

I’d just like take a quick moment of your time to tell you that Curtin University is proud to announce that it is once again the Australian organiser for participation in the UNEP-DHI Eco Challenge.


We’d love to welcome you and your students to Eco Challenge for 2016. You can get a sneak peak of the new website here where you can register your interest, download the new Facilitator’s Guide and connect with a range of other resources.

Previous winning teams:
2014: Kent Street Senior High School
2015: Rossmoyne Senior High School


REVISED GAME PLAY

UNEP-DHI Eco Challenge provides an exciting and authentic learning experience for students in Years 7-12 through the online strategic game, Aqua Republica, to explore issues and solutions relating to water management and sustainable development.  The age limits are not strict – capable upper primary students are also welcome.


The new mission-based approach to Eco Challenge incorporates a more sustained engagement with the principles of water usage across industrial, urban and agricultural systems and the impact upon ecosystems.  Climate change is also a major consideration.


TEACHER PROFESSIONAL LEARNING

We are also offering online Teacher Professional Development that is badged and certified.  Just a one hour commitment when it suits you.

 

PLEASE SHARE WIDELY

Please feel free to share this invitation with your friends, colleagues and professional networks.  

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Kim Flintoff
