Green Schools Sustainability Program

MAD Green Grants making a difference for Coffs Harbour

With the announcement of extended funding through the Coffs Harbour Environmental Levy Council have launched a new grants program for schools, preschools and early learning centres in the Coffs Harbour LGA for 2019.

MAD Green Grants will fund projects that engage young people to connect with, protect and make a difference to their environment. The program will run over the calendar year and we encourage applicants to work with their students, parents and colleagues to design their own practical and passionate ideas on how they would like to make a difference.

Applications for the 2019 MAD Green Grants will open in Term One, February 2019. eligible projects can seek up to $2,000 of seed funding towards their project. An information session will be held in February 2019. Please register to stay informed about dates, times and locations by contacting Council's Sustainable Livings Program Officer on 02 6648 4643 or via email.

Sustainable Schools Network

Come and be inspired by what you do!

The Coffs Harbour Sustainable Schools Network (SSN) is a free support network for teachers and parents to meet and discuss environmental sustainability ideas, projects and opportunities for their schools, preschools and early learning centres.

Facilitated by Coffs Harbour City Council, the network meets four times per year (once a term) with a different school from the network hosting each time. It's a great opportunity to share knowledge and ideas.

For more information, to provide feedback or register your interest, contact Council's Sustainable Living Programs Officer on 02 6648 4643 or via email.
