Environment grants: Apply for your workplace

IEU members are invited to apply on behalf of their schools, colleges or early learning centres for one of three grants of $3000 each sponsored by the union to help with their environmental projects.

The union has a proud history of funding and supporting education projects that bring sustainability projects to life and is the sole sponsor for this initiative in 2020.

There is no definitive list of possible activities, but typical projects include habitat conservation, biodiversity and tree planting, outdoor learning areas, vegetable and kitchen gardens, organic produce, water and energy saving, waste, recycling and composting projects and aboriginal cultural projects.

The eligibility criteria include long term viability of the project, a link to the broader environmental education strategy and effective management of the project.
