Fundraising for our forests

The IGS Sustainable Futures is taking part in the HalfCut challenge this term.

“More than 50 per cent of the world forest is gone,” IGS Head of Sustainability Carmelo Fedele said.

“We need to save the other half! Rainforests are one of the most important natural resources left on Earth. Giving us clean air to breathe, a stable climate, plants that produce medicine and they are also home to thousands of unique animals that depend on their protection for survival.

“We’re encouraging students, staff and parents to take part in the IGS Sustainable Futures team.”

There are two ways to support the initiative:

  • Join the team by registering an account, fundraising and then going half cut (you can shave half your beard, cut, colour  or braid your hair).
  • Donate to someone on our team.

We’re aiming to raise $1500 which will save approximately 600 square metres of the Daintree Rainforest.”

The  are also supporting National Tree Day.

Carmelo will present a prize for the student who raises the most money.
