How do you connect with nature?

A national initiative to collect stories about how Australians connect with nature is underway, with UTAS researchers seeking to understand how we can encourage more positive relationships with the environment.

Researchers are keen to hear from Wildcare members about their experiences of nature connection; with the resulting findings being used to inform improved environmental strategies and policies.

Your story can be in any creative format (photo, poem, video, short story: you decide) and will be published on an interactive website.

To share your story please visit The Nature Connection Project or for more information contact the Project Coordinator, Jen Sharman:, 0409 592 424.

Perhaps you’d like to incorporate storytelling into your next event? Get in touch with Jenni if you’d like to find out how you can include this beautiful storytelling space (and storytelling facilitator) in your community.

This project is co-funded by the National Environmental Science Program through the Sustainable Communities and Waste Hub and the University of Tasmania.
