Welcome to the CERES School of Nature and Climate

CERES has been delivering sustainability education to children and adults for almost four decades. We have been teaching school students and the wider community about climate change and the environmental challenges we face before many people understood the science or even believed they could be impacted by these issues in their lifetimes.

The CERES School of Nature and Climate is the evolution of CERES’ education programs into a focused response to the climate and ecological crisis we are facing. It is our role to help give learners the knowledge and skills to make changes to their lives, communities and the systems that govern us. We do this through connecting to peoples’ hearts, sharing knowledge to empower their heads, and teaching applied skills they can implement with their hands.

We invite you to start – or continue – your learning journey with the CERES School of Nature and Climate.
