Our priorities

Nature education

For nature to be valued and preserved for generations to come, it must be loved. That’s why Green Adelaide will grow nature and sustainability education in Adelaide to support children, adults and families to connect with and learn to care for the environment.

Connecting with the natural world from a young age brings about many developmental, health and social benefits. It can also nurture an instinctive desire to do more to protect the natural environment and the native plants and animals within it.

Experiencing nature hands-on creates our environmental custodians of the future.

People are already developing a sense of ownership and becoming more connected to nature thanks to programs like NRM Education and Nature Play. To further those outcomes, Green Adelaide will partner with the community, schools, businesses and government to deliver a nature education strategy that builds upon existing activities and programs.
