The Centre for Education and Research in Environmental Strategies (CERES) is a sustainability center and urban farm located in East Brunswick, Australia. The Australia 2030 Trail, an interpretive trail at CERES, encourages sustainable practices by showing the environmental effects of our lifestyle choices. After fifteen years of use, the trail needed redesigning and updating for current climate change projections. Our team focused on Phase 2 of the Australia 2050 Trail redesign by verifying climate projections from a previous WPI team, evaluating design suggestions, creating a virtual prototype, and designing new illustrated display boards. By testing the design with students and CERES’ staff, we found that it successfully communicated CERES’ mission and is ready to be implemented.
