I recently saw this fabulous & very inspiring mural on a playground wall in the grounds of Ferncourt Public School Marrickville.  The message of the mural is great & an important one for our municipality.

I firmly believe that, if you want to develop adults who love & respect the environment, you start when they are children.

It would be nice to see this kind of passive & attractive education on some of the public spaces across the municipality.  Melbourne city has lots of street art & much of the government-sponsored street art has an environmental message, as well as being beautiful.  It is an effective method in educating the community without haranguing them.

Students made a decision  to stop polluting the Cooks River all the way back in 2001.  All these children are  probably adults now.   I think it is wonderful.
