Discover resources that support wellbeing through nature.
Environmental education and resilience resources
I have a lifelong passion for environmental education. In 2020 I helped coordinate a project in regional Queensland for Landcare Australia. In this project we explored the role environmental education plays in building wellbeing and resilience.
Through a series of three workshops, students were given guidance from community leaders to create a butterfly garden within their school setting. The workshops incorporated hands on outdoor learning in designing and making a butterfly garden. To help support other locations to implement this program, facilitator resources outlined how to deliver the workshop program.
Student resilience in disasters
Students at the schools had experienced natural disasters. The program was specifically designed to improve student wellbeing and resilience as a response to disasters. Integrating a community approach helped develop deeper connections with school and environmental communities.
