Individual schools, groups and families, who are not located within areas covered by existing sponsored programs, can have their students/children write and illustrate a book that will be published as part of Enviro-Stories.
By combining literacy, art, science and sustainability, Enviro-Stories involves schools in an environmental education program, which has a focus on their local area. It provides teachers and students with an opportunity to learn about their local environment (a farm, backyard, waterway, bushland), a local identity or traditional culture and interpret their experiences or through the writing and illustration of a storybook. Enviro-Stories books have been written about local issues, by local kids, for local kids.
Since 2009, our sponsored programs have seen hundreds of books created by students from all over Australia about their local area (see our Library). Increasingly we have had more and more people, from outside our sponsored areas, enquire about how they to can join Enviro-Stories. Due to the popularity of these requests we are happy to bring to you our Solo Project, where everyone has the chance to create an Enviro-Stories book.
