The ‘Otesha Project: Cycling for Sustainability’ is a non-profit organisation that offers bicycle tours and education programs to engage young people about sustainable consumption. Using theatre, multimedia, and interactive workshops, Otesha’s creative focus provides a unique approach to understanding environmental and social justice issues, encouraging young people to become role models and sustainability advocates. Our new program for Melbourne high schools delivers sustainability workshops to middle school students and aims to increase awareness and inspire them to take action. Our workshops use experiential education techniques to encourage critical thinking and active learning. They are designed to be interactive, engaging and fun. We currently offer four workshops topics climate change, food, consumerism and fair trade.
To ensure this program is sustainable we need assistance. We are looking for a volunteer to work closely with the program coordinator to help promote the program to schools and source workshop bookings, prepare educational materials and resources, help deliver workshops and provide follow up support to students and teachers. Ideally this person will live in Melbourne and be able to give a half a day to a full day (preferably Monday or Wednesday) to the role. The funky volunteer would have good organisational skills, an understanding of environmental and social justice issues, experience or interest in sustainability education and confidence in presenting to groups of young people would be an advantage.
Applications close: 05 December, 2009.
