Enhancing education about coastal management
We have compiled a range of information sheets, teacher packs and pocket guides that can be used to complement our CoastEd sessions.
These resources are also useful for anyone wanting to learn more about various aspects of coastal management.
In these packs, teachers can find a range of ideas, activities, resources and lesson plans, designed to engage Gold Coast students on coastal management, ecology and tourism. Resources are created for targeted year groups and include clear curriculum links.
Coastal Recreation and Tourism
Resources in this pack allow students to discover the social and economic value of Gold Coast beaches. With a seemingly endless summer and coastline spanning nearly 50 km, beaches are our city’s playground, with millions flocking here each year to enjoy the surf, sun and waves. Every year the City of Gold Coast invests in the management of our beaches and foreshores. This investment, in addition to the global reputation and marketing of the Gold Coast and it’s beaches as a top tourist destination, highlights the significant social and economic value of the beaches.
