Schools Environment Network North Sydney

Background

Historically, SENNS was a network for teachers and school environment committees, to link professionals, and exchange information.

In 2014, the network became a student-focused and run forum which aims to engage students in leadership and mentoring for sustainability, in turn strongly supported by educators and their environment committees.
