We have motivated more than 147,000 students since 1999 to research important environmental and sustainability issues and bring about real positive change.

This impact is driven by our two flagship events: Kids Teaching Kids Week, and the Annual Conference. Our conferences have been held across Australia since the inception of the program, and have adapted to a virtual event for 2020 and 2021.

United Nations Sustainable Development Goals

Our work is highly aligned with national and international goals towards sustainable life.

Through involvement in the Kids Teaching Kids Program sponsors, schools and other supporting organisations directly progress on two sustainable development goals (SDGs):

  • Education and lifelong learning (SDG 4), and
  • Promoting partnerships (SDG 17)

Through sponsorship, support and involvement in our teaching activities, participants also gain awareness and understanding of four additional goals:

  • Clean water and sanitation (SDG 6)
  • Sustainable cities and communities (SDG 11)
  • Climate action (SDG 13), and
  • Life on land (SDG 15)
