The Green Lane Diary is Green Cross Australia's award-winning education program for primary school children.


It is a free program aligned to the national curriculum for years 3-7. Designed by industry experts and education specialists, the diary empowers children to learn about the environment through positive action at home, at school and in the community.

By working through topics like water, waste, energy and biodiversity, young people turn 10 weeks of discovery into practical actions. They record these actions in a daily diary, or through photos and videos. At the end of the program, Green Cross Australia uses these measures to review all the wonderful actions taken by students and classes across Australia, to award them at the Green Lane Awards.


Greenlanediary.org is an interactive, multimedia website supporting the Green Lane Diary project run by Green Cross Australia.


The Green Lane Diary website was awarded the:

  • 2010 National Award for Best Education Website - Australian Web Awards
  • 2010 Interactive Media Award for Outstanding Achievement for excellence in the design, development and implementation, Charity category - Interactive Media Awards
  • 2010 Interactive Media Award for Outstanding Achievement for excellence in the design, development and Mara Bun_hi resimplementation, Kids category - Interactive Media Awards

And here is a welcome message from Mara, Green Cross Australia:


Don't let environmental problems get you down. Knowledge is power! Learn about what is going on and start doing something to help. All of the little steps combine to make a big difference.


Use your diary to keep track of your ideas and check out the website and iPad magazine for even more inspiration. Then share what you are doing and let us know what you have been up to. You might be crowned a 2013 Green Lane Hero or have your story featured online.


Remember, kids can make a difference. You don't need to wait until you are taller. Get started today!!!
