When working on environmental initiatives collaboration amongst year levels and schools can be very important for multiple reasons. Firstly, collaboration allows students to combine their skills and resources to achieve a common goal. By working together, students can pool their knowledge and any expertise to develop effective strategies for running environmental initiatives. Additionally, collaboration can enhance student learning and development, as students learn from each other, sharing unique perspectives and ideas.
