History

The work of Live & Learn Environmental Education first began in 1992 in Queensland, Australia. Local teachers provided environmental education programs on rainforest and reef conservation to local school children. The volunteers assessed their work and found that biological education alone was not leading to better community conservation. With renewed energy, Live & Learn redesigned its efforts to promote environmental, action-focused education in the South Pacific.

Our first country office was opened in the Solomon Islands in 1995, with a further seven offices opened in the Asia-Pacific region by 2009. The Live & Learn network of locally registered non-governmental organisations has grown significantly since 1992, now operating in 9 countries.

Live & Learn International is an Australian organisation based in Melbourne and acts as the international network office. The international network office is registered under the Associations Incorporation Act 1981 (Vic). The Melbourne office provides strategic and technical support across all countries and ensures effectiveness and transparency as per the Australian Council for International Development (ACFID) Code of Conduct.

Mission

Live & Learn educates, mobilises communities and facilitates supportive partnerships in order to foster a greater understanding of sustainability, and to help move towards a sustainable future.

Live & Learn is a dynamic learning network of locally registered organisations operating in nine countries across South-East Asia, the Indian Ocean and the Pacific.

Live & Learn country offices are registered as local NGOs. They are locally managed and staffed and have partnerships with government agencies in their respective countries of operation. Building local capacity, confidence, skills and partnerships within our networks is fundamental to Live & Learn. This strengthens our relationships with communities, builds local ownership and ensures longterm commitment to our programs.
