Social and Environmental Sustainability Action Plan

In our Social and Environmental Sustainability Action Plan 2020-24, TAFE Queensland outlines its goals, strategies and actions towards achieving our commitment to sustainability.

TAFE Queensland Social and Environmental Sustainability Action Plan 2020-2024

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, also known as the Global Goals, were adopted by all 193 Member States in 2015 as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. Australia, as a member state, endorsed this roadmap for global development efforts to 2030 and beyond.

Through this global partnership, every person is empowered to take care of the planet through changing habits and making choices that have less harmful effects on the environment. Every person is challenged to find strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and promote economic growth in a bid to ending poverty.

About our plan

In the Social and Environmental Sustainability Action Plan 2020-24, TAFE Queensland outlines its goals, strategies and actions towards achieving our commitment to sustainability.

At TAFE Queensland we believe that vocational education and training has a key role to play in the achievement of the Global Goals and to make sure we leave a better planet for future generations.

Our staff, students and the community will work together to implement this plan.

 

Social and Environmental Sustainability Committee

We have established the TAFE Queensland Social and Environmental Sustainability Committee to:

  • Encourage and promote discussion around TAFE Queensland’s social and environmental sustainability practices,
  • Identify and discuss matters for areas of improvement in sustainable practices,
  • Provide a regular forum for the exchange of ideas, opinions and information, and
  • Provide updates on ongoing projects relating to the TAFE Queensland Social and Environmental Sustainability Action Plan.

Membership of the committee is currently made up of staff from across the state.

An Australian first: TAFE Queensland Robina campus

The first of its kind in Australia, our Robina campus located on the Gold Coast has been designed to be sustainable from the ground-up and in every aspect of campus operations including campus design, course curriculum, and student life. Opened in July 2022 it boasts a range of facilities and venues open to the public including Seedpod Café, Green Fields Bar + Restaurant, TQ Fitness, and Robina Events Centre.
