Inspiring a love of nature is fundamental to it being valued by the community and preserved for generations to come.
Connecting with the natural world, particularly from a young age, brings developmental, health and emotional benefits. It can also nurture future advocacy and an active desire to do more to protect the natural environment and native species.
Hands-on experiences discovering the outdoors and nature, together with a great school education, will create our environmental stewards of the future.
Green Adelaide will build on the work already happening in schools and urban communities, thanks to the success of programs like NRM Education and Nature Play. Sustainability programs for adults and families will help connect people to nature.
Green Adelaide will partner with the community, businesses and government to deliver a nature education strategy that builds on existing activities and programs, such as nature education, volunteer support, community-run natural resource centres and urban sustainability and coastal ambassador programs.
