Abstract

The Banksia Gardens Community Centre in Broadmeadows, Victoria, Australia seeks to educate and empower the youth of the Centre to adopt sustainable practices through its new Edu-Eco Link program. Based upon extensive consultation with the Broadmeadows youth and their mentors, our team established program design principles and developed a menu of suggested lesson plan options for the Centre. The program entails excursions, discussions and experiments which link local and global climate change issues, culminating in participants' creation of an informative video.
