Join us for a free workshop on 27 April, to learn how the Greenprints program can help you and your students bring Kids in Action into your school and curricula.
“Greenprints is a powerful way for kids and adults to learn about their local place – it brings together Indigenous knowledge, science, history, geography, economics, law and much more!” (Miya Isherwood, Far North Queensland)
“Greenprints” is a re-imagination of the concept of ‘blueprints’. It’s an Aussie designed framework that helps people learn about and take steps to create a regenerative future within their bioregion and beyond. It’s Earth-centred, place-based, focused on Caring for Country and it engages with existing sustainability tools and approaches – from local NRM plans to Planetary Boundaries and Doughnut Economics. It’s been designed to connect with a wide range of disciplines and knowledge systems, including: Indigenous knowledge, science, law, economics, ethics, the arts and more.
