I did not have to listen to Cecile van der Burgh of Child Nature Connection for long before catching her enthusiasm and passion for seeing children connecting with nature. "It's really all about inspiring people with solutions, and championing the ideas of those that are already doing so much in the child-nature movement; the power of diversity is amazing, and the Nature Play Week is a celebration of what is already happening in Victoria."
Some great work is happening across Victoria in the children-nature movement. Nature Play Week is a new event that endeavours to bring together various initiatives that reconnect children to nature and the outdoors.
There will be fun children's activities all around Melbourne, including events at the Ian Potter Children's Garden at The Royal Botanic Gardens, screenings of Project Wild Thing (a film-led movement to get more kids and families outside and reconnecting with nature), bug hunts, mud drawings, gardening, and more.
