The aim of the education program is to build partnerships with key local groups including local government, businesses, schools, events and other organisations to support them om their journey towards sustainability.
Established in 1999, the core program for the delivery of education outcomes was Waste Wise, covering the areas of schools, businesses/organisations, events and state & local government. Waste Wise involved a three tiered certification process - bronze, silver and gold. Waste Wise concluded in 2009.
In 2008 the transition from Waste Wise to the ResourceSmart AuSSI Vic schools framework commenced. ResourceSmart AuSSI Vic incorporates all areas of sustainability waste, water, energy, biodiversity and transport. The Highlands RWMG is the lead agency for the Grampians ResourceSmart AuSSI Vic Consortium of service providers working with local schools.
