Nature Stewards is proud to have partnered with the City of Melbourne once again, together with Citiwide, to train staff taking part in the ‘Greening the City’ project as part of the broader Working for Victoria initiative. This has been an excellent opportunity to support Victorians to learn from an expert facilitator, local traditional custodians and other environmental specialists, about their State and local environments, together with finding out where and how to act for nature locally, during the Stage 4 COVID19 lockdown.
The two programs have been a great success, with feedback such as:
In this tough time (lockdown), I felt connected, connected to the people I work with, connected to an intellectual stimuli, connected to some amazing beings from various organizations … and more importantly connected to Nature, because the program truly changed my point of view towards the nature. Now I feel confident when I am in Nature, connected when I see some insects, animals, or plants, and proud when I know that I have some knowledge about this. Now, this will help me to take my curiosity to another level and given me a chance to explore more. Thanks Nature Stewards Program and thank you. – Krishna
