Student Environmental Leadership Network

The Brisbane City Council's Student Environmental Leadership Network (SELN) is a unique learning and leadership program that directly engages and supports schools to be cleaner and greener.

Through a project-based, active learning model, students are empowered to create positive environmental change in their school and community. Student representatives attend five Council-facilitated meetings throughout the year that equip them with lifelong skills in project management, communication and leadership.
