Sydney's Beating Green Heart – Caring and Connecting with Country at Sydney Olympic Park 

29-08-2022 16:13

Sydney Olympic has an exciting and ambitious vision for Sydney Olympic Park by 2050. The journey will see Sydney Olympic Park become known as Sydney’s beating green heart. Connection to country, nature-positive, and community engagement are at the heart of achieving this vision.

The Neighbours Nurturing Nature program is an early, on the ground step towards inviting the community to actively care for place.

The program aims to achieve strong social and environmental outcomes through connecting people in the local community to each other and the park. This will be achieved by engaging local community members in collaborative environmental projects that aim to improve the parklands, wetlands and waterways, and threatened species habitats of Sydney Olympic Park.

The pilot stage of the program commenced in early 2022. This presentation will focus on the program concept, progress and learning to date. We invite you to follow our journey, as the community forge stronger connections with each other and Wangal Country as they become stewards of Sydney Olympic Park.

Presenter: Fiona Tucker, Sydney Olympic Park Authority
