A Byron High student-led presentation of environmental projects was put on display recently at The Farm on Ewingsdale Road.
The school’s Stuart Galletly-Salisbury told The Echo the presentation also included coverage of their once-in-a-lifetime visit to Mauritius to present at the inaugural International Young Persons for the Planet conference.
‘They outlined plans to meet a range of sustainable development goals,’ said Stuart.
The afternoon also included planting native fruit trees. Stuart added, ‘In 2019, students are planning to further reduce consumption at the school, and improve recycling, composting as well as reducing the CO2 emissions of the school’.
‘Their plans will be informed by an audit in collaboration with Zero Emissions Byron Bay and students from Southern Cross University’.
