1) Building Nature Play Week
We have progressed our thinking on how we can best facilitate collaboration in the child and nature space and we'd like to test our ideas and get your input!
One of the ideas we'd like to share with you all is the inaugural Nature Play Week to be held in the first week of April next year.
We think this will be a terrific way to bring together initiatives of all shapes and sizes that reconnect children to nature and the outdoors.
We invite you to come along and help shape this further!
The roundtable discussion will be facilitated by Jason Clarke from Minds at Work.
Date: Wednesday 20th November
Where: Mueller Hall, Royal Botanic Gardens, Melbourne
