Teacher Environment Network

What is the Teacher Environment Network

Moreland Council, in partnership with CERES, hosts a quarterly Teacher Environment Network (TEN) for teachers and parents from Merri-bek schools.

The network enables schools to share ideas and provides teachers with information and new approaches to engaging students on a range of sustainability topics.

Each quarter the network will focus on a different area of sustainability with guest speakers and news from Council about programs that schools can get involved in.
