2019 Woolworths Junior Landcare Grants
Growing the next generation of environmental champions
Open to primary schools and early learning centres across Australia, the Woolworths Junior Landcare grants aim to inspire kids with hands-on projects focusing on sustainable food production, improving waste management practices and enhancing native habitats.
The 2019 Woolworths Junior Landcare Grants combined with the first round of grants distributed in 2018 resulted in a total of 1,155 schools and early learning centres throughout the country receiving a grant. This means more than 100,000 Australian students are getting hands-on in caring for the environment, helping to grow the next generation of environmental champions.
The 2019 grants were awarded at the end of that year, with most projects starting at the start of the 2020 school year. With COVID-19 forcing schools across the country to implement remote learning for several months, many grant recipients had to delay their projects and be very creative.
However, the majority of the grant recipients submitted their final reports, detailing inspiring environmental and educational outcomes.
Below are case studies for some of these completed projects, including environmental and educational outcomes, just click and read.
A third round of Woolworths Junior Landcare Grants will be held in 2021. To keep updated, make sure you subscribe to our monthly eNewsletter, Junior Landcarer.
The Woolworths Junior Landcare Grants program is funded from 10 cents from the sale of each Bag for good™. The bag was launched when the supermarket removed single-use plastic shopping bags across all stores nationwide.
