Think.Act.Green (T.A.G) aims to increase environmental awareness amongst Victorian secondary school students whilst providing them with an opportunity to develop professional skills such as financial understanding, research, analysis and evaluation. With sustainability being an issue of increasing global significance, targeting local schools with an environmental program provides future leaders with the knowledge and exposure to address the need for a sustainable community.
T.A.G has enlisted the support of companies operating in the energy and resources sectors such as Shell, Yarra Valley Water, Origin Energy, Long Life Lighting, Earth Systems and others, to develop a program of seminars, skills-based tutorials, an environmental conference and an inter-school competition.
Following a successful pilot project in 2009, nine secondary schools are now actively participating in 2010, with thirteen schools anticipated for the 2011 program.
