Footprints for our Future
The Choices we make

If you live near the coast or even if your school is thousands of kilometres from the sea, learning to live, work and play in a sustainable way will help to protect and preserve many of our precious land and marine environments.

Please note: Many of the materials available (Jan 06) are in draft form. Further information will be added and refinements will occur leading up to Seaweek.

Major Sponsor


Our Principal Naming Rights Sponsor for Seaweek 06 is BAG SMART. Bag Smart is a social marketing campaign to reduce plastic shopping bags in the community.

Bag Smart connects people to the issue of plastic bags, demonstrates that there are alternatives, and supports the take up of sustainable social change.

Seaweek could not happen without the support of our many sponsors. Find out more about them.
