For academic year 2022, Genus is completely free to all schools.
Our mission is to develop a generation of young people that think instinctively and acts decisively for the planet. Each action taken with Genus has a measurable, positive impact on the planet. We provide a framework that promotes critical thinking about sustainability, through understanding the issues and considering practical solutions. By developing students' ability to consider real-world implications for their actions, Genus develops personal responsibility and drives positive behaviour changes, that also reinforce classroom learning.
As the Australian Curriculum states, sustainability "addresses the ongoing capacity of Earth to maintain all life". In the Genus platform, we take a holistic approach to sustainability. We break the topic into 4 key areas – Cause of Climate Change; Waste Reduction; Endangered Species; Threatened Ecosystems. By covering these 4 areas in each year, the fundamentals of sustainability are considered independently, as well as interdependently.
