Between 2009 and 2011, the School–Community Learning Partnerships for Sustainability Project explored the ways in which schools and communities can work together to achieve sustainability outcomes. The project involved seventeen schools and early childhood centres and their communities in developing case studies of their collaborations.
The research project has now been completed. One important outcome of the research is the Conversations on School–Community Learning Partnerships for Sustainability (A Guidebook) that has been produced to provide others with guidance on developing and sustaining effective School-Community Learning Partnerships for Sustainability.
The Guidebook is the result of three years of research and collaboration with schools and community members across Victoria. We are excited to share this Guidebook with you and we hope it serves as a helpful resource in establishing, reinforcing and celebrating School-Community Learning Partnerships for Sustainability.
