The Liberal National Party in Queensland have passed a motion to remove 'environmental education' and 'climate science' from the education system in Queensland.
We need to make sure that the Newman Government does not act on this motion and remove funding for environmental education or remove sustainability education from the curriculum.
Premier Newman needs to hear loud and clear that the Queensland community value a school system that teaches science in line with the latest peer-reviewed research, not in line with political ideology or vested interests.
Join us in telling Campbell Newman and education Minister John-Paul Langbroek to disregard this outrageous political motion and continue the strong tradition of sustainability education in Queensland schools.
Instead of cutting funding for environmental education, the Queensland government should invest more money into the Australian Sustainable Schools Initiative, which continues to directly provide skills and solutions to environmental problems for our students.
