Sixty little voices and sixty letters to a mayor led to a partnership with Brimbank Council which resulted in approximately 2,500 trees planted at Ardeer South Primary School. Students are driven to leave a legacy for both their school community and the planet, working hard to care for the urban forest they helped create.

Through their advocacy, Ardeer South students have changed the lives of others, and, in turn, have changed their own lives, as they have now a mindset that will inform their future engagement with the environment in which they live, and the footprint they will leave behind.
