Australian Sustainable Schools Initiative (AuSSI)

The Australian Sustainable Schools Initiative (AuSSI) is a partnership of the Australian Government and the states and territories that seeks to support schools and their communities to become sustainable.

AuSSI engages participants in a whole-of-school approach, to explore through real-life learning experiences, improvements in a school's management of resources and facilities including energy, waste, water, biodiversity, landscape design, products and materials. It also addresses associated social and financial issues.

The Initiative's vision is for all Australian schools and their communities to be sustainable. Find out about the key elements and resources involved.
