The GoMAD (Make a Difference) Challenge

The GoMAD Challenge is an environmental program for students who are motivated to make the world a better place and improve the sustainability pracitices of their schools and communities. The GoMAD Challenge is managed by Environmental and Zoo Education Centres. Student's participating in the challenge must develop and implement a strategy to improve upon an environmental issue they are passionate about and then share their journey witht he creation of a short 1-3 minute film. Students are supported through forums, environmental leadership camps and enviro project support as part of the program. At these events, students can learn more about sustainability and share stories of what they are doing in their schools and communities to help improve the environment. Events are advertised directly to teachers, teacher networks and through School Biz.
