Climate change does not respect border[s]; it does not respect who you are – rich or poor, small and big. Therefore, this is what we call ‘global challenges’ which require global solidarity. Ban Ki-moon, Secretary-General of the UN

Connecting schools

WithOnePlanet open education supports teaching about environmental viability, culture awareness, active citizenship and linking school communities in Australia and Timor Leste through technology and travel programs.

WithOnePlanet is an inquiry- and challenge-based teaching and learning method that focuses the environmental education through three themes: carbon (where we live), culture (who we are) and citizenship (how we live).

The resources for years Foundation to 10 are designed to meet the requirements of the Australian Curriculum. The resources for livelihood skills focus on permaculture techniques to improve food production and security.

WithOnePlanet encourages students to gain an insight and better understand the importance of the carbon cycle to the future survival of the planet on which we depend, through the exploration of science, our culture and the role of active citizenship in creating fair and equitable societies.

The INQuIRY teaching and learning method provides opportunities for teachers to engage students in single or cross-disciplinary areas of study and explores climate change issues through the science, English, maths, geography, history, art and citizenship curriculums.

Students are encouraged to formulate lines of inquiry, to question and investigate, to review and share information and to build the knowledge to make our region a more interesting, sustainable and better place.

WithOnePlanet is a companion program of WithOneSeed and WithOneBean that work with communities in Australia and across the Asia-Pacific region to make environments sustainable, to end poverty and hunger, to increase access to education and to build regional relationships.

WithOnePlanet is auspiced by the xpand Foundation, a social enterprise committed to an inclusive society that values the sustainable livelihood and happiness of every individual.
