Wake Up It's International Day of Yoga!!! 🌈

"On 27 September 2014, the incumbent Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi was attending the annual congregation of the United Nations General Assembly when he insisted upon the global community to acknowledge the importance of Yoga as a precious asset of Indian Civilization and as a blissful practice to improve human health and enrich the human mind with peace. He argued that:

“Yoga is an invaluable gift of India’s ancient tradition. It embodies unity of mind and body; thought and action; restraint and fulfilment; harmony between man and nature; a holistic approach to health and well-being. It is not about exercise but to discover the sense of oneness with yourself, the world and nature. By changing our lifestyle and creating consciousness, it can help in well-being. Let us work towards adopting an International Yoga Day.”
(Indian PM Narendra Modi, at UNGA: 27 September 2014)"

Hope you find a blissful moment today!

Syntropic Gardening for Schools 🥦
Check this out... www.agendagotsch.com/en/activity-guide-for-syntropic-school-gardens/

Agenda Gotsch 

"What unites us is the fact that we take responsibility for contributing to education in our communities."

"The pedagogical potential of school gardens is immense as informal learning environments. Manual and technical skills can be stimulated, but also emotional and social capacities that are indispensable for all of us."

Love to hear your thoughts on this article....

https://theconversation.com/the-idea-of-green-growth-is-flawed-we-must-find-ways-of-using-and-wasting-less-energy-160432

In our schools, are we having the conversation about consuming less?  Are you seeing change?  If not, what support do you need to waste less energy and change consumption patterns...

The  #ssn would love to hear your thoughts...

Taking a mindful moment.... 

Remember the days of watching the clouds pass by??

Making pictures out of the clouds as they formations changed....

Sometimes all we need is a moment to recharge, connect with nature, breathe and reset. 

Education for Sustainability doesn't have to be complicated, it can be as simple as watching the clouds pass by - at least for a moment 😀

As we celebrate  #worldenvironmentday today, we thought it was a good opportunity to chat about this statement made by the Honourable Minister for the Environment in Queensland (@[17841403661953290:6057:@meaghanscanlon] ) on Wednesday night.

" what we need is future-focused policy and decision making that doesn't just look at short term election cycles, we look at what our future will be like the for the next generation".

We couldn't agree more and look forward to an opportunity to discuss this further with you Minister.

Thank you @[17841400308066544:6057:@qldconservation] for coordinating an incredible online event for Queenslanders on Wednesday night!!! Can't wait for the next one.

Wake up and celebrate that today is  #WORLDENVIRONMENTDAY!!! 

What are your plans?  Will you take a moment to be mindful? Will you take action to restore or protect our shared planet?

Sustainability and Science Showcase – Sunday 13 June
 
On Sunday 13 June, head over to the Queensland Museum to be a part of a free community event.
- Find out why being sustainable matters and what practical tips you can try
- Hear from scientists and community sustainability experts
- Discover Queensland citizen science projects
- Learn about the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and pledge to do your bit to address global challenges like climate change.

At the Sustainability and Science Showcase, you can browse the interactive exhibits, attend information sessions or try QuestaGame’s citizens science app for recording species in a tour of South Bank.

Teachers may be interested to meet with @[171614780360163:274:Belgian Gardens State School] representatives who will be discussing their sustainability efforts including their unique Clownfish and endangered bird breeding program (endangered finches and parrots). They have also collected 50,000 pieces of rubbish from their local beach. Students have designed and built tools to pick up the rubbish.

Also, Ned Heaton, a young eco-entrepreneur and founder of The Turtle Tribe, is speaking on one of our panels and will be exhibiting. Ned Heaton, 13, from Tamborine Mountain is on a mission to get plastic toothbrushes banned to help reduce ocean plastics. He started his own bamboo toothbrush business when he was 11 to encourage Australians to reduce their plastic waste and ultimately reduce ocean plastics.

For children, there will be wildlife to meet and science and art workshops. 

The community event coincides with the Sustainability Research & Innovation Congress 2021 (SRI2021) being held between 12-15 June 2021.

More details here: https://www.citysmart.com.au/showcase/sri2021/
