Actsmart Schools program

Nominations for the 2020 Actsmart Schools Sustainability Awards now open – go here for more information.

It’s smart thinking for schools to focus on sustainability. It sets a good example, supports the environment and can lead to cost savings.

Actsmart Schools is a FREE specialised program that helps schools improve their sustainability. The ACT can be proud – all schools have signed up to this program, making us the only jurisdiction in Australia to achieve this.

Actsmart Schools supports schools to save energy, conserve water, increase recycling, protect biodiversity, cut greenhouse gas emissions and integrate sustainability into the curriculum.

This free program provides a range of support, including best practice guides, site visits and advice from specialist staff, professional learning, tools and resources. Schools are evaluated through an accreditation system and rewarded for their efforts. For more information email or call Actsmart Schools Officers on 6207 6430
