Eastern Alliance for Sustainable Learning

The Eastern Alliance for Sustainable Learning (EASL) was formed in 2011 to assist member councils in delivering joint sustainable learning initiatives across the Eastern region.

EASL aims to promote lifelong learning and action that improves the health, well-being and environmental sustainability of local communities by:

  • Promoting innovative learning and teaching that fosters environmental citizenship.
  • Advocating for a strong and consistent commitment to learning for sustainability.
  • Building capacity of local education providers and member Councils to deliver effective sustainability initiatives to their communities.

Member Councils include:

  • Knox City Council
  • Manningham City Council
  • Maroondah City Council
  • Whitehorse City Council
  • Yarra Ranges Council.

EASL runs professional development, networking and other educational sessions to those within the member council areas. These sessions are primarily for teachers, parents and others within the educational community who have an interest in sustainability education.

EASL helps to support its members in delivering their respective objectives for environmentally sustainable, resilient, thriving and engaged communities and adds value to each member Council’s existing strategies, policies and plans.
