Deakin University...

Deakin University participated in the pilot leg of Picture The Coast's venture by sending two of their students, Dane Costello (Marketing & Management) and Chyanna Allison (Environmental Sciences) on the voyage as part of its Work Integrated Learning programme.

 

The University's Faculty of Commerce & Law in collobroation with Professor Paul Couchman has also invited Picture The Coast to keynote the Bowater Social Challenge and support the development of Social Entreprenuership in their Bachelor of Commerce cirriculum by adopting a more practical approach.

Lego Foundation...

The Lego Foundation through its relationships with Hands On Technologies (A Social Enterprise in South Africa that is revolutionising education) has kindly pledged approximately $5 million dollars of Lego to distribute around the coastline of Australia during our journey. That's approximately 5 shipping containers of Lego arriving on Australian shores

 

The difference that the "6 Bricks" programme has made in South African schools has placed Brent Hutcheson and the Hands On Technologies team at the forefront of education in social entreprenuership, and one of the Lego Foundation's key changemaking partners.

Green SuperCamp...

The Green SuperCamp programmes provide personal leadership, academic acceleration and environmental awareness camps for children aged 10 to 18 years and will invite their community of young people throughout Australia and beyond to be a part of the Picture The Coast journey.

 

Director, Heather Yelland has described the venture as "an educational endeavour  which offers so many opportunities for children to be involved and inspired to be their best. Providing young people with experiences that expand their horizons and inspire their souls is as the core of all we do at Green SuperCamp and there are multiple examples of this already in the PTC activities."

More exciting partners coming soon...
