Last chance to move into the Green Lane

Schools can now sign up to the revolutionary 'green diary' project aimed at helping Australian  children green our future.


The Green Lane Diary is a free project instigated by humanitarian environment group Green Cross Australia that aims to inspire children at a young age to not only learn about sustainability, but to become Green Lane Heroes whose creative ideas could help change Australia's environmental future for the better.


The Green Lane Diary project runs off a cartoon filled multimedia educational website: www.greenlanediary.org


The project is supported by the emerging National Curriculum, CSIRO and Education Queensland, and will run from July through September 2010 throughout term three with school students aged 10-12 years taught the important issues facing Australia's environment.


Teachers can register their school on the website - already more than 160 schools have signed up representing 12,600 students. Registration is open until the beginning of Term 3.


Over a ten week fact and fun filled program, students will log their daily record of ecological activities and discoveries in a Green Scrapbook that can be  downloaded and printed from the website.


The project will encourage green school activities and interactive challenges including video participation.


Student Scrapbooks and projects will be judged by the Queensland Minister

for Education and Training Geoff Wilson at a special event in November this year, with the most creative and innovative students crowned Green Lane Heroes.
