Recent major projects

World Education Forum Tasmania has initiated two major projects:

The Christopher Strong Education Trust

This trust fund was established in 2009 after the untimely death of Christopher Strong AM, a Past President of WEFT. The Trust seeks to establish a capital fund, the interest from which will be used to provide Teacher Training for the teachers of Tarime, a district of Tanzania in Africa.

Climate Change Matters (Link opens in new window).

A Curriculum Centred approach to achievable solutions

  • To help teachers by providing a course of study
  • To provide a simple explanation of the science
  • To inspire children and schools to take action
  • To make our presence on planet Earth sustainable
  • To share what others are doing
  • To raise issues of concern in the interests of public education. We are not a political group and will avoid supporting party political stances although at times it may appear that we agree or disagree with action or inaction being taken by political parties.

Our motivation is spirited by a belief that we need to encourage a balance between an education which nourishes the personal worth and growth of individuals and one which stresses the social responsibility of each to work critically and constructively towards improving the human physical world environment (World Education Fellowship Australian Forum 2002).
