Take 3 Schools Education Program

Take 3 delivers education to inspire action.
We work with primary and secondary schools to raise awareness of plastic pollution and encourage simple actions to prevent it. Since 2011 we’ve delivered education programs to 120,000+ students from 200+ schools across Australia.

Our approach is to provide students with a compelling reason to act before encouraging them to develop their own ideas to solve the problem locally. Students are encouraged to develop solutions that will:

1. Prevent litter in their school and community.
2. Reduce waste sent to landfill from school.
3. Share information to educate and inspire others.

Examples of outcomes include:
Student led campaigns to stop litter; rewards programs for students who clean up the school or community; increased recycling in school; composting of organic waste at school; reduced plastic packaging at school canteen; installing water refill points; banning single-use plastic bottles at schools and more.

To deliver our education program we partner with councils, businesses, government departments and schools.

Take 3 Surf Life Saving Project

The Take 3 Surf Life Saving Project works with Surf Life Saving Clubs (SLSC’s) to educate clubs, with a particular focus on nippers, about plastic pollution, to spread the Take 3 message and inspire SLSC’s to become active in reducing litter, waste and pollution that is so detrimental to our coastal and marine environment.

Surf Life Saving Clubs and their members share a common love of the ocean and the coastal environment and like Take 3, have a desire to protect it to ensure its
sustainability in the future.

With well over 300 SLSC nationally and 129 clubs within NSW alone, Surf Life Saving Clubs and their members are the largest group on the beach and undertaking coastal based activities in Australia.

Project Goals:
• Increase awareness within clubs and the community of plastic pollution and the impacts on oceans, waterways and wildlife.
• Increase participation of club members (particularly nippers) in sustainability education (waste, litter and pollution focus).
• Remove litter/ debris from local beaches, reserves and waterways e.g. beach clean ups
• Increase the role of SLSC’s as environmental champions and trigger systemic within the wider community.
• Provide SLSC with an Initiative based program that addresses aspects of the SLS EcoSurf policy and therefore contributes to fulfilling section 8.2 of the Quality Clubs program.
