It's good for everyone when our neighbourhoods are bursting with nature!
Native trees and shrubs keep us cool, make our streets beautiful and provide habitat for wildlife. More nature is an important climate solution, and it's vital for biodiversity. In greener spaces we breathe cleaner air, feel happier and are more connected to one another.
That's why, across Australia, people like you are getting together to bring much more nature into our communities by running Nature for Neighbourhoods events.
It's up to you and your community what you decide to do. You could green your nature strip together, build a frog bog, or create a local pocket park for people and wildlife. The most important thing is that your event brings people together to care for nature.
By connecting communities to protect and restore nature locally, we can build a huge movement of nature lovers to shift the politics and fix the systems that are destroying life – all while boosting biodiversity in our cities and towns.
Sign up to be part of the campaign and we’ll send you a step-by-step guide on how to run an amazing local nature event.
And join our webinar next Thursday 20 February to ask questions, hear examples of local nature projects, and get inspired!
