    Young people are now bringing their own energy, passion and inspiration to Landcare, and working alongside their communities (or even starting new ones), to make a difference to the planet in their own unique way!

    Not only are young people leading projects for more young people to get involved in, they are also addressing a range of issues young people face such as mental and physical wellbeing, social isolation, and access to safe and accepting spaces, as well as access to career pathways into industries they want to work in. They are creating opportunities for fun and adventure and connection to nature and exploring ways of learning more about Indigenous perspectives and connecting with Country. Using their unique gifts and talents, they have discovered that Landcare provides many pathways to make a difference.

    Please share some examples from your community.
