About the Program

Enviro-Stories was established by PeeKdesigns environmental education consultants in 2009. The program involves students learning about their local area and passing this knowledge on to others through storytelling.

The program has proven to be a simple but effective concept that enables sponsors to engage students from throughout their region.

Enviro-Stories provides an educational experience for the purpose of creating school readers that have been written and illustrated about local issues by kids, for kids.


We hope that continued support for the program will see it spread across new regions of this wonderful and story-inspiring country.

Community engagement

Enviro-Stories provides a unique community engagement opportunity for sponsoring organisations that involves schools in an education program focussing on establishing a ‘sense of place’ within the local environment.

Sponsors have the ability to structure the program around their key messages and areas of interest, as well as meeting curriculum needs of the participating schools. Sponsors can also vary their level of involvement to engage their local community, or put it in the hands of the experienced Enviro-Stories team.

Created for schools

The program provides a creative outlet for diverse abilities. Whether it is for gifted students, average students or those with special needs, Enviro-Stories can be easily adapted to suit everyone.

Enviro-Stories allows teachers to address many subject areas within the curriculum; such as English, Science, Art, Humanities and Technology. It can also address the cross-curricular priorities of Sustainability and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Histories and Cultures. 

Participation is not limited to students in 3-6 year levels as we have had books prepared from preschool through to year 11 high school students.

Hundreds of books

Through the valuable support of our sponsors, we have been able to bring Enviro-Stories to schools in regional New South Wales, Queensland, Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia.

Since its establishment, the Enviro-Stories program has produced HUNDREDS of student written and illustrated books and TENS of THOUSANDS of copies distributed to schools and communities. This is a massive achievement for all the teachers, parents, students, sponsors and other contributors to this innovative program.
