About us

The 24 NSW Department of Education Environmental and Zoo Education Centres (EZECs) are leaders in environmental and sustainability education. 

Our Centres provide authentic, curriculum-based fieldwork learning experiences that enable students to explore, investigate and understand the natural and made environments. 

Our programs provide opportunities to understand concepts and systems and develop values that empower learners to become environmentally responsible citizens. 

By strenthening partnerships and developing teacher capacity, Centres enable schools to integrate sustainability education into all aspects of school operations including curriculum, teaching and learning, physical surroundings and relationships with the local community.
