The Future of Australian Education – Sustainable Places for Learning
Our vision for the future of Australian education is a one where all students and teachers have access to sustainable places for learning, and all students and teachers can reap the benefits of happier and healthier education facilities.
Join us on Tuesday 17 September 2013 as we explore how this vision of the future can be Australia’s education reality. We’ll launch The Future of Australian Education: Sustainable Places for Learning – a report that outlines the benefits of learning environments that prioritise resource efficiency and indoor environment quality, and provides a road map for the creation of healthier, happier and more efficient schools, universities and tertiary education facilities.
Hear from The Hon Robyn Parker MP, Minister for Environment and Heritage, Professor Alec Tzannes, Dean of the University of NSW's Faculty of Built Environment, Alex Matovic, Associate Director, Grimshaw Architects, and Anne Hellstedt, ANZ Practice Leader - Applied Research & Sustainability, AECOM as they share their experiences creating and operating sustainable learning environments such as the UNSW Tyree Energy Technologies Building, Peter Doherty Insitute for Infection and Immunity, RMIT Design Hub and University of Wollongong SMART Infrastructure Facility.
Our panel of experts will also discuss the opportunities that better education facilities provide for integrating sustainability and hands-on learning into education policy, curricula and teaching practices.
