The program culminates in a flagship conference for each DAL. Schools come together to create peer teaching workshops, where they share their knowledge from months of learning. The conferences enable students to thrive in taking collective responsibility for the future, and students are empowered to be young environmental leaders.

Macedon Ranges

From native grasslands to Hanging Rock and Lerderderg Gorge, the Macedon ranges landscape is home to a variety of endangered plants and animals such as the Black Gum, Brush-tailed Phascogale, Powerful Owl and the Great Glider. Traditional lands of the Dja Dja Wurrung, Taungurung and Wurundjeri peoples, this area faces challenges from increasing global temperatures in the form of bush fires and clean, plentiful water supply from the Campaspe Catchment area. Some of the key environmental focuses for a sustainable future in the Macedon region include:

· Reservoir management

· Urban cooling and innovative urban planning

· Reducing fire risks

· Establishing native animal biolinks
