Using individual stories, large projects and international responses, learners can pose questions, investigate and act upon their findings using the inquiry approach.  With Australian Curriculum links and without resorting to hopelessness, this classroom resource will provide many opportunities to understand this complex and rewarding topic. It also questions fundraising and school partnerships as pathways to increased global awareness.

The Story of Stuff Project’s journey began with a 20-minute online movie about the way we make, use and throw away all the Stuff in our lives. Five years and 40 million views later, we’re a Community of 500,000 changemakers worldwide, working to build a more healthy and just planet. 

Marilyn Snider‘s insight:

Creating a sustainable is more than caring for the environment and more than reusing or recycling.  It has at its heart the setting of goals for a better future for all.

Marilyn Snider‘s insight:

Education is key for reducing children’s risks to disasters. Children are one of the most vulnerable groups when disasters occur. If we teach them from the early age about the risks posed by natural hazards, children will have a better chance to save their lives during disasters.
