Huge thank you to all the schools who dropped by our display at Youth Eco Summit (YES), shared their ideas for nature play in NSW and Greater Sydney and ‘put a sticker on the map!’ on their favourite outdoor places. As promised, we’re sharing them online so you can see your ideas displayed and take look at what other schools have said. We will be creating a nature play list from your ideas and sharing it in a resources pamphlet for schools who can use it to find environmental education activities in their areas. In the meantime, check out our Resources for schools page!
