The Learning for Sustainability Video Conference Festival showcased best practice in pedagogy and school management in the area of environmental education and sustainability. Over 50 video conferences were presented throughout the week to over 10,000 students.

I presented sessions on Bugwise and other invertebrate surveying methods to 456 students and teachers from 17 schools participating in 3 different sessions. It was great to be part of such a fabulous event and to share my passion on invertebrate diversity.

Other presenters include teachers, students, environmental education centres, scientists, adventures and other government and non government providers.
