As part of the Sustainability for Diverse Communities Resource Hub, Environment Victoria pulled together plenty of sustainability translations covering:
- Waste and recycling
- Consumerism and chemicals
- Energy and climate change
- Gardening, composting and food
- Public housing
- Backyard biodiversity and more
Influencing a culture which is not your own can be hard, but with more than six years of experience in working on sustainability with culturally and linguistically diverse communities (and 15 years working in behaviour change), Environment Victoria has learnt a few things which make it a whole lot easier. Here are our 10 golden rules for making your multicultural sustainability projects effective.
These resources include session plans, booklets to give out, PowerPoint presentations, even evaluation forms and certificates. They're designed as a series of four workshops, on Energy and Climate, Water, Smart Shopping and Waste, and a final celebration workshop. But you could run any of the workshops on their own, and all of our resources can be edited so you can adapt them to what works for you.
