Learning for Sustainability
Learning for Sustainability is Yarra Ranges Council’s environmental educational program aimed at primary and secondary schools. It is a five step program that assists students and teachers to gain a stronger understanding of how their actions can make a more sustainable future.
There are five key areas in each step of the program; water, energy, biodiversity, materials and community.
Teachers & students of all ages.
We are looking for a bright modern site that appeals to students of all ages and teachers. It should include space to highlight program information, upcoming events, excursions and latest news.
Ideally we would love to see a wide photographic header that can include images that represent the five key areas of the program (energy, water, biodiversity, materials and community)
Please note as we are a local government we must adhere to accessibility guidelines. For both comaptability with our CMS and accessability we are unable to support a flash navigation/mulitple layer as used in the example below. We can support a rotating image banner but please do not include the navigation/main menu in the banner.
Site the LfS team love:
Healesville Sanctuary - http://www.zoo.org.au/Healesville
The LfS team particularly liked:
• The use of photos on top of each text box to soften and not make the text boxes too 'boxy'
• Liked the use of silhouettes to soften boundaries of header, footer and text boxes.
The design is not limited to, but should complement the LfS logo colours outlined in the LfS Logo Style guidelines.
Please include the LfS logo in the header and Council’s logo in the footer.
The content page should include header, main menu, second level navigation, page image, general content area.
Homepage should include:
Navigation (Home, About, Resources, Grants & Awards, Upcoming Events, Schools Network, Contact Us)
Text area for Program Intro
What’s New – area for links latest information on site
Excursions/Incursions – area for dates/locations
