ECOCHALLENGE-Slogan-badged

I’d just like take a quick moment of your time to tell you that Curtin University is proud to announce that it is once again the Australian organiser for participation in the UNEP-DHI Eco Challenge.

We’d love to welcome you and your students to Eco Challenge for 2016. You can get a sneak peak of the new website here where you can register your interest, download the new Facilitator’s Guide and connect with a range of other resources.  Schools can play until the end of April 2016.

Previous winning teams:
2014: Kent Street Senior High School
2015: Rossmoyne Senior High School

REVISED GAME PLAY

UNEP-DHI Eco Challenge provides an exciting and authentic learning experience for students in Years 7-12 through the online strategic game, Aqua Republica, to explore issues and solutions relating to water management and sustainable development.  The age limits are not strict ­ capable upper primary students are also welcome.

The new mission-based approach to Eco Challenge incorporates a more sustained engagement with the principles of water usage across industrial, urban and agricultural systems and the impact upon ecosystems.  Climate change is also a major consideration.

TEACHER PROFESSIONAL LEARNING

 

We are also offering online Teacher Professional Development that is badged and certified.  Just a one hour commitment when it suits you.

INTERNATIONAL SUPPORT FROM UNEP-DHI

We’d like to thank the UNEP-DHI Partnership Centre on Water and Environment for supporting our involvement.
