ABOUT ANNE BURKE
Anne is a passionate environmentalist and sustainability educator registered with the Victorian Institute of Teaching and with a current working with children check. On her Inverloch property she works with students to integrate robotics, including drones, humanoid robots and computer games into sustainability and regeneration solutions.
In 2002 she was invited to Antartica with Sir Robert Swan Polar explorer and a team of global warming scientists. They measured the depth of the ice in an attempt to highlight the effect of a warming climate on the polar region. On her return she worked in a number of education organisations immersing students and community groups in global warming, sustainability and biodiversity solutions.
In 2019 she was once again invited along with Sir Robert Swan and team of scientists from around the globe, this time on an expedition to The Arctic. She was immersed in a program where she learnt how to offset emissions from a personal, community and a government perspective. On her return in an attempt to live authentically to her values, she sold her home in Melbourne and purchased 10 acres with a passive house in the Bass Coast town of Inverloch, situated on the Bass Coast Biolink passage, where she immediately planted 3000 indigenous shrubs, bushes and trees, leveraging of local indigenous knowledge in an attempt to encourage animals to return to their food corridor, while returning the land to it's original state.
She was invited to be one of three members of the Global Curriculum Orbit facilitating projects from an educational perspective based on the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals. The project she is currently delivering on her property is based on goal number 2, Zero Hunger, number 13, Climate Action and number 14, Life On Land.
