- The Model
- Computer Emission Fund
- Youth Ambassador Program
WithOneSeed and the Royal Botanic Gardens, Cranbourne, Victoria has developed cooperative school-based educational programs with local educators in Victoria and Timor Leste. Programs will focus on environmental science and agroforestry education.
WithOneSeed - Universal Education for Australian schools
Education programs in Victoria will examine the theories of the carbon cycle, climate change, carbon offsetting and increase awareness, not only of the contribution to climate change by their own society, but also the contribution of their own personal behaviour. In particular they will be made aware of the particular impacts of their personal computer/device use and encouraged to take action and contribute to the Computer Emissions Fund on an annual basis. A pilot program is under way and it is anticipated that the first students will have completed this unit of work by the end of June 2012.
WithOneSeed - Universal Education for Timor Leste schools
School education programs in Timor Leste will initially be more practically oriented than the Australian school-based education programs and will be designed to provide students with knowledge and hands-on experience in plant propagation. School-based nurseries will be established so that students can propagate seedlings and provide saplings for Community Tree Cooperatives to plant and grow to maturity.
The exercise will assist students to understand climate change and to appreciate plant propagation and afforestation as mitigating processes. Their increased understanding will lead them to understand the wider benefits of their plant propagation activities. This will, in turn, make an important contribution to school education in Timor Leste by providing a significant new link between students and schools and a new incentive for school attendance. The Technology Resource Hub will be used to allow students in the village to be able to link with students in Australia to build greater cultural awareness and the global nature of climate change between the next generations.
