As part of CERES Environmental Education Course, you can enrol in 1 day workshops (professional learning days) that focus on sustainability topics.

Through a mix of theory, demonstrations and design activities you will explore how to use values-based communication, getting others on board and approaches to behaviour change. Learn about CERES behaviour change model, learn from a suite of resources and have the opportunity to design your own model for change.

Topics covered on the day:

  • People, mindsets and values
  • Creating a movement
  • What makes people change?
  • Creating your model for change
  • Messages, Framing and Storytelling
  • Creating your narrative for change

With open minds, connected hearts and busy hands we can educate, inspire and engage people in making change happen.

Lauren Kaszubski is the CERES Excursions Waste Programs Coordinator and for her, it all started in Year 9 when she heard the first-hand story of a woman living in the treetop of a Californian Redwood for 464 days in protest against the logging of local Redwood forests. It was the story that would inspire Lauren to start the first ever Environmental Awareness Group at her high school and go on to study Environmental Science & Management at the University of Newcastle. During her time of study Lauren started working casually in outdoor education programs and this soon ignited her passion to work with children and the environment at the same time. Now-a-days Lauren is all about worm poo, recycling & waste management, and local food systems. Lauren started volunteering at CERES in 2013 and soon after became one of the CERES Excursions casual teachers. As of late 2013 Lauren has been the Excursions Waste Programs Co-ordinator. With her passion and knowledge combined Lauren works towards providing students with creative hands-on learning experiences that they can carry with them throughout their day-to-day lives.
