Growing the next generation of environmental champions
Developed for primary schools and early learning centres across Australia, the Woolworths Junior Landcare Grants Program offers opportunities for primary and preschool aged children to engage in outdoor, hands-on environmental learning activities that promote the development of positive environmental, educational and social outcomes.
The grants, of up to $1000 each, encourage children to share knowledge, create experiences and develop skills so they have an understanding and appreciation of sustainable food production, indigenous perspectives, improving waste management and enhancing native habitats.
A total of 1,155 schools and early learning centres throughout the country received Woolworths Junior Landcare Grants in 2018 and 2019. 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.
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.
