The Centre for Education and Research in Environmental Strategies (CERES) raises awareness about sustainability by educating visitors about how their actions have implications for the future. To assist CERES, we evaluated one of their visitor activities about sustainability, the Australia 2030 Trail, designed to promote awareness about the effects of current lifestyle choices. We found that the information, infrastructure and education methods needed to be updated in order to better educate visitors. We designed a new Australia 2050 Trail using information from a literature review, interviews, focus groups and surveys to understand how to improve the 2030 TrailÂ’s content and design. Further recommendations are included to evaluate and improve our proposed 2050 Trail.
