Learning Circles

Biodiversity & The Cross Curriculum Priority

The worldwide biodiversity crisis demands and educational response. There is also the nature education issue that shows biodiversity is a fantastic way to build powerful learning scenarios and a Curriculum that espouses this integrated knowledge concept through the cross-curriculum priority.

Yet research and on-ground evidence suggests biodiversity education is not working in schools and educational institutions despite it being a core element of the curriculum.

So how do we make it work?

An information sharing and planning session facilitated by Graeme Sawyer.

Presenter

Graeme was actively involved in the establishment of the Australian Association for Environment Education (Northern Territory) in 1987 and has maintained an active involvement in it ever since. He is Vice-President of the Australian Association for Environmental Education (nationally), and President of the Northern Territory branch. Graeme was responsible for developing innovative programs such as a multimedia information system about wildlife and habitats, which became part of a display at Questacon, Canberra for six years. He is the cofounder of Frogwatch and has been heavily involved in community awareness and education campaigns about biodiversity, and about frogs, cane toads, and reptiles.
