    Abstract

    Little Green Steps, a training workshop on education for sustainability for early years educators, was recently conducted by the Australian Association for Environmental Education - Western Australian Chapter (MEE-WAJ. With a grant from the Waste Authority of Western Australia, AAEE-WA was able to provide professional learning for staff of childcare services, kindergartens and preschools. The purpose of the training was to encourage sustainable practice through zero waste policy and practical implementation of these practices for children, staff and parents. This training was developed by Lady Gowrie Child Centre In Sydney and the Department of Environment, Climate Change and Water in New South Wales, and assisted in the setting up of the professional development component of Gosford City and Wyong Shire Councils' Little Green Steps Program. To increase national exposure to the program two days were offered in WA. Each day stood alone as a discrete training program.
