OUR NATIONAL APPROACH to education

Partnering with Cool Australia

As part of our commitment to engaging the next generation on recycling best practice, we have partnered with Cool Australia since 2017 providing curriculum resources for teachers and educators across early learning, primary and secondary schools.

Over 32 teaching and learning resources have been developed on topics including resource recovery, recycling right at home and school, recycling contamination and how individual efforts can contribute to the local circular economy of recyclables.

32 free

curriculum-aligned,
downloadable resources

125 free

admissions to an accredited*,
online professional development course

The Visy Education program provides effective, curriculum based lesson plans. The lessons provide a consistent message on the best ways to recycle, while demystifying what material can and cannot be collected from homes and what happens to the recovered waste materials.

Visy’s aim is to provide this important information via credible and valued resources.

Through programs such as these, and with a collaborative approach with councils and schools, we are able to educate future generations on recycling best practice and the broader benefits of the circular economy.
