Glen Eira children involved in upcycling mural

By Matt Hurlston

The importance of sustainability and education cannot be overstated, but bringing the two together can help create long lasting effects for the future of Australia. 

In Glen Eira recently, 14 schools and nine early childhood services banded together to create a mural depicting landmarks in the local community. This was created using upcycled materials, making it a sustainable fixture of the area. 

More than 1,400 children were involved in decorating their own corflute boards before joining them together to create a huge 15 metre tall display. Glen Eira mayor Jim Magee said the aim was to help students understand the importance of plants, animals and the environment around them. 

Glen Eira has a wide range of public exhibitions and galleries that offer residents and visitors alike plenty of opportunities to take in some beautiful and creative art during their time in the area. 

The mural will be on display at the Carnegie Library until 9 June, so be sure to head along and see the collaborative efforts of the next generation!
