The network is a great opportunity to bring together the diverse knowledge and skills from the strong sustainable school community of the Inner West. Existing network members find the knowledge sharing in the network invaluable to the sustainability work they undertake at their schools.

“It’s great to see what’s happening at other schools as far as sustainability and the environment goes - learning how other schools engage both teachers and students and how they incorporate sustainability into the curriculum.”
- Stephen Jackson, Stanmore Public School
