Australia is hopping with folks committed to the children and nature movement.
Please click here for a list of some (not all) of the great organizations doing inspiring work across Australia.
The list was assembled by and graciously shared with C&NN by Antje Dun, librarian with ACF. If your Australian organization should be on this list, please let us know by commenting below.
I’m pleased to be headed back to Australia. From Feb. 22 through Feb. 26, 2014, I’ll be helping the Australian Conservation Foundation (ACF) raise awareness about connecting children, adults and communities to nature. I’ll be visiting Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Adelaide.
During my first visit, in 2007, I worked with several organizations across the country, and was asked to help launch Nature Play WA, a campaign led by the state of Western Australia. Nature Play WA is now collaborating with IslandWood, a nature education program in the United States.
And in 2012, New South Wales National Parks and Wildlife Service invited me to come to Sydney. While I was there, the NSW Curriculum and Learning Innovation Centre taped a series of short interviews done by elementary and high school students at the Royal Botanic Gardens, published online in 2013.
As you’ll see, the six students were exceedingly smart and charming. Maybe I’ll see them on this trip, too…
