About this event
P&Cs Qld is hosting this four-hour interactive networking and knowledge sharing workshop about Containers for Change in Queensland state schools. We will showcase practical solutions to maximise the fundraising and environmental education benefits of the scheme, as well as discuss challenges faced. These discussions will aim to help state schools improve their fundraising and student engagement.
Participants will have the opportunity to draw on the experience of other schools and P&Cs, share their knowledge of issues and challenges in managing the scheme, to help shape a plan that will harness existing school curriculum and community resources and drive behavioural change in the school community.
Rachael Williams, Project Officer – Environment from P&Cs Qld
Andrea Chisholm, Containers for Change Champion from Bellevue Park State School
Clare O’Brien, Marketing Manager from Return.It.

Who should attend the event from my school?

The workshop is being provided to state schools who have partnered with P&Cs Qld in the Containers for Change scheme. These schools are the priority. However, state schools interested in partnering with P&Cs Qld should express their interest as tickets will be made available if numbers allow.
