Bluearth is proud to be a part of the Healthy Schools Network in the ACT.
The Healthy Schools Network ACT is a collaboration of local not-for-profit organisations that actively promote health and wellbeing in act primary schools, secondary schools and the early childhood years. Our organisations can assist act school teachers and educators in many ways, including staff training, class-room resources, awareness tools, recognised programs, professional learning and general support.
Research from 2011 shows that one in seven Australians say they experienced discrimination because of their colour or background.
Bluearth Foundation is proud to have joined forces with some of Australia’s leading business, sporting bodies, Universities and BGO’s to pledge its support for the Australian Human Rights Commission’s ‘Racism. It Stops with Me’ campaign. The Campaign is a key initiative of the National Anti-Racism Strategy.
Racism. It Stops With Me is a campaign which invites all Australians to reflect on what they can do to counter racism wherever it happens.
We have pledged to support this campaign to achieve the National Anti-Racism Strategy’s objectives:
- Create awareness of racism and how it affects individuals and the broader community
- Identify, promote and build on positive programs to prevent and reduce racism, and
- Empower communities and individuals to take action to prevent and reduce racism and to seek help when it occurs
