The Great Ocean Road Coast Committee has been running education activities since 2011 that are based on natural resource management practices and hands-on conservation activities, engaging with students from all over Victoria. As a State government body, we offer a number of activities to participants on our managed coastal Crown land. The program – designed to equip participants with the knowledge and skills to work with, understand, respect, protect and enhance our coastal surroundings – aims to inspire students to be the environmental stewards of the future and become advocates for the coastal environment. We want students to have a sense of accomplishment that they have done something for the environmental health of this area and that they have ‘paid back’ to the coast for the recreational time they have spent there.
Educational leaders from GORCC are very experienced and knowledgeable. Their message fits with our school pedagogy.
