We've developed a series of online learning resources, to support the virtual delivery of the ResourceSmart Schools program.

These online learning resources are not exclusive to those involved in the program, but available for all teachers who would like to incorporate sustainability into student learning.

Climate dialogue sessions

On Friday’s, we talk climate change with a range of topical experts and special guests. Join into the live sessions where you can ask questions and be part of the discussion. Offline videos will only be uploaded after the live sessions.

Climate dialogue sessions are open for all audiences and year levels.

How it works

Video library

Each Wednesday up until the end of Term 2, we will upload new videos for students and teachers.

From 1 June, we will add on-demand videos for the following:

Live sessions

We will also run live Q&A sessions, until the end of term 2. These sessions will be co-facilitated by the RSS team. During a live session, students and teachers can watch an episode from our video library and engage in a real time Q&A with presenters.

Live sessions are conducted through Microsoft Teams Live Events. You won’t need any special software to access these, simply follow the link. The link will only work during the live session time. You can copy and paste the link to give others access.

N.B. The video software used adheres to child safety standards.
